More than a month after a $78.5 million bond proposal was turned down in November’s election, the Hays USD 489 school board will discuss the results and how to move forward.

That item, along with a proposal for improvements to the Hays High School HVAC system, are among new business items on the agenda for Monday’s school board meeting.

Voters said no to the bond proposal by 61 percent — 3,471 to 2,237, according to the official election results from the Ellis County Clerk’s office. It was the second bond proposal in two years to get the pubic’s no vote. A $94 million proposal was voted down in June 2016.

Prior to November’s election, Superintendent John Thissen told The Hays Daily News the district would address heating and air conditioning in the high school whether or not the bond passed. On Monday, the board will take a step in that direction.

The board will discuss a bid from Building Controls and Services Inc. of Wichita for HVAC renovation in the main and auxiliary gyms and the wrestling room. The $778,362 proposal includes new AAON rooftop units, ductwork, structural reinforcing and new gas piping.

Also on the agenda are revisions to the HHS curriculum guide, an update on the district’s accreditation process, and votes on approving the memorandum of understanding with Fort Hays State University on teacher tuition assistance and classified staff handbook changes.
