With a need for more classroom space in the Alta school district, Superintendent Fred Maharry suggested forming a study committee during the board meeting Monday night. The committee will allow the school to move forward with a bond issue.
"I think we need to form one big committee of board members, teachers and community members, where we can share our ideas and begin to learn together," Maharry said. "From that one committee, I would like to see us form three sub-committees."
The first committee would deal with optimal learning conditions along with different programs that need to be looked at.
The second committee would deal with the education spaces needed to accommodate the needs of those different programs.
The third committee would deal with a long-range financial plan.
Maharry wants to extend the invitation to anyone who is interested, whether their feeling be positive or negative toward a new bond issue.
The committee would meet once or twice a month in hopes of having a solution a year from this December.
"I think this will be like starting over," board member Dan Sliefert said. "I think we just need something to run with."
Board members Rick Glienke and Richard Marshall have both been approached by people in the community who are already interested in becoming involved.
