Kent School District Bond Planning Task Force
The Bond Planning Task Force analyses data produced from thorough internal and third-party assessments of each facility to determine a set of recommendations for the Kent School District Board of Directors to support a list of capital projects which will be put forward to voters. These are voluntary positions that serve in terms aligning with each bond cycle.
A combined assessment of each facility’s building condition, design capacity, and functional performance reveals the district’s capital facility needs at each location. Through a facilitated process, the Task Force then reviews these assessments and develops recommendations that align location needs with districtwide initiatives based on core values and best practices for the future of learning environments in Kent School District. Through a series of seven meetings, the task force members reach a consensus on a singular recommendation to be presented for consideration to the school board and superintendent.
The Bond Planning Task Force meets twice monthly leading up to finalization of the recommendations; and will continue meeting periodically for updates. Meeting dates are outlined below. All meetings are held from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. It is also possible that members may attend school board work sessions and board meetings that include agenda items related to a capital bond measure in 2023. The next presentation will be at the board work session on October 26, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. in the Kent School District board room or watch online on the KSD YouTube channel.
