The Exira/Elk Horn-Kimballton Community School District’s “Super Board” of Education will meet Monday evening at the High School, in Elk Horn. On their agenda for the 7-p.m. session, is discussion, and action on approving a Resolution for a vote on the Revenue Purpose Statement (RPS) for the New District.
The RPS will allow the districts to authorize the expenditure of revenues from the State of Iowa to secure an advanced vision for the education fund received by the Exira-Elk Horn Kimballton Community School District. The RPS specifies how the One-cent Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) can be used, including, but not limited to: Property Tax relief; New buildings or additions to current facilities; the lease or purchase of buildings or equipment, and more.
If the measure fails to win voter approval on Feb. 4th, it will not terminate or restrict authority previously granted by the voters to expend receipts from the “secure an advanced vision for education,” fund. If it’s approved, it will remain in effect until replaced or amended by the Exira-Elk Horn-Kimballton School District.
In other business, the Super Board will appoint Board members for negotiations, act on other, administrative matters, and Early Retirement Acceptance from Previous Districts (Exira and EHK).
