The Fowler school board held a brief meeting on Monday to discuss the school budget, along with a variety of other school business.

The board is still reviewing several options for the facilities master plan. They are expecting an executive summary within the week.

“I was thinking that it would be nice to have the executive report in front of us before we did this, but we do need to start rolling," said Board President Eric Larson.

Board member Justin Osborne said, “I think we should make a yea or nay decision in the next meeting.”

George K. Baum & Company, a firm that provides investment banking services to schools as well as guidance through bond issue campaigns, has submitted a service agreement to the district regarding the school’s public policy.
