  • More Sharing For Fremont-Mills, Sidney?

    TABOR - Representatives from the Sidney and Fremont-Mills boards of education are scheduled to meet in Tabor tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 23) to discuss opportunities to expand the sharing of resources between the two school districts.

    The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Fremont-Mills School Media Center.

    The two districts, both members of the Corner Conference, currently share resources and expenses in several areas, including transportation, maintenance and business services.

  • New Bus Barn Coming Soon

        The Glenwood Community School District has wrapped up the purchase of a parcel of land that will serve as the future home of the district’s bus barn and maintenance facility.
        The district completed the $300,000 purchase of the former Evans Equipment property located at 601 Railroad Avenue on Dec. 1. The district plans to transition the current bus and maintenance facility, dubbed the “bus barn” and located adjacent to Northeast Elementary School, to the new site over the next three months.

  • Third Time Is The Charm

    The third time did indeed turn out to be the charm for the Glenwood Community School District Instructional Support Levy (ISL).

    The special levy, which will help fund the district’s curriculum needs, passed by a narrow 51-49 percent margin last Tuesday. The levy received 868 “Yes” votes and 839 “No” votes.

  • Third Time The Charm?

       The Glenwood Community School District is hoping the third time is the charm for the Instructional Support Levy.
        After the two previous attempts failed to pass among district voters, Glenwood is again seeking permission to collect more than $700,000 in additional tax revenue to support learning needs and curriculum improvements in the cash strapped district. The ISL measure will be put to a district-wide vote in February.
