The Benton-Carroll-Salem School District’s Facilities, Communications, and Finance Committees came together on October 15 for a special joint meeting to discuss the long-term path for school district facilities. Committee members, who included community members, board members, and district employees, discussed the closure of school buildings in the past, and improvements that have been made to school buildings currently in use. The joint committee came to the consensus that the district must begin to develop a plan to continue providing safe and efficient school facilities for students and community long into the future. The group discussed how this facilities plan must consider the prudent spending of tax dollars to maintain current facilities, while also being forward looking. A facilities plan would help the district spend its tax dollars strategically and wisely.
