As we look to balance instructional time for students, the professional learning needs of our staff, along with family and community priorities, your feedback is greatly appreciated.

The proposed calendar will then be shared with parents, staff and the community to provide additional feedback before it is presented to the Board of Education for approval.

Outdoor Stadium Construction Project Update

The Southern Boone School District continues to work on plans for the construction project at the outdoor stadium, after voters in the Southern Boone School District approved the $3 million no-tax-increase bond issue during the April 2022 election. The project includes a new track, field turf, video scoreboard, sound system and installing additional bleachers to the north of the existing home bleachers.

During the December school board meeting, the Board of Education approved individual bids to Mid-America Sports Construction for the track and field, Heartland Seating Inc. for the bleachers and MidStates Energy Co. LLC for the electrical work. In November, the school board approved a bid from NEVCO for a new video scoreboard and sound system.

Work on the new field turf and track project is scheduled to start around the middle of May, with a majority of the project anticipated to be completed by the end of August.
