428 new logo 2019

The Great Bend USD 428 Board of Education will hold a special meeting at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, July 30. Topics will include increased health precautions and details surrounding restarting school safely for the 2020-2021 school years.

The administration will also provide quotes for the purchase and installation of bipolar ionization air purification systems for HVAC units in the schools. Improvement of indoor air quality by air cleaning and filtration can slow the transmission and help reduce airborne contaminants, including particles containing viruses.

Finally, Superintendent Khris Thexton will provide updated details of the district’s proposed 2020-2021 budget and the board will be asked to approve the budget notice for publication in the Great Bend Tribune.
