COVID-19 has created uncertainty for school districts across the country for the upcoming school year. It has also created delays on some schools’ building projects. Sturgeon Superintendent Geoff Neill says they are currently experiencing such delays on several of their bond projects.

Following the passage of Proposition K.I.D.S. in early June, the district began moving forward on a series of improvements to security, as well as construction on a new weight room and agricultural workshop. While some of these projects are delayed, Neill says others will still be completed in short order.

The district is also planning to use $30,000 from Prop K.I.D.S. to purchase a district vehicle to be used for small groups to travel to conferences and transport food to the high school. Neill has begun seeking bids for the vehicle.
