May 20 Board of Education Meeting Outcomes and Updates
During its May 20, 2019 meeting, the Steamboat Springs School District Board of Education voted unanimously to narrow the type of new school facility to two options by eliminating the option to build an additional middle school. Additionally, the board will delay its decision on the type of new school facility the district will build until the next Board of Education meeting, on June 3, 2019. The decision to delay the new school facility vote was made so board members would have the opportunity to tour similar new school sites in area districts. The board believes school site tours will help provide a more complete understanding of the remaining two school facility options, so members can make an informed decision regarding the construction of a new school.
The two remaining school facility options are a new K-8 school and a K-4 replacement elementary school to replace Strawberry Park Elementary which would become part of the 5-8 middle school campus. School locations for the district’s pre-school program will be considered during the priority projects discussion at upcoming board meetings.
The Board of Education unanimously voted to select Steamboat II as the future location of a new school facility. Once the board makes a decision about the type of school that will be built, it will work with the neighborhood on the optimal placement of a facility on the district’s property.
Another outcome of the May 20 board meeting was the scheduling of a special meeting on June 5 to discuss topics and possibly take action related to a potential bond, including finalizing priority projects at the various school sites and the overall size of the bond. Additionally, the special meeting will include discussion related to potential mill levy overrides to address operational costs of a new school and staff compensation. The board’s goal is to have all decisions related to 2019 funding measures made by June 17.
The school board will continue conversations with possible action on the new school type, as well as discussion on priority projects for other district schools and mill levy override funding for operational costs and staff compensation, during its upcoming meeting on June 3. -Superintendent Brad Meeks

JUNE 5 BOARD OF EDUCATION SPECIAL MEETING OUTCOMES AND UPDATES
