School district leaders host first information-rich forum


The first of three public meetings on the proposed additions and remodeling project at the Perry High School drew a small but attentive crowd Wednesday night to the Perry Performing Arts Center.

Perry School Board Vice-President Linda Andorf and Perry Community School District Superintendent Clark Wicks presented a wide range of information on the project during the 30-minute forum, afterward taking questions.

The $6.5 million project would double the size of the Perry High School Industrial Technology Department and build a multipurpose/wrestling room on the McKinley Street side of PHS.

School district voters will see the following language on the referendum ballot Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019:

Shall the Board of Directors of the Perry Community School District in the Counties of Boone, Dallas, and Greene, State of Iowa, be authorized to contract indebtedness and issue General Obligation Bonds in an amount not to exceed $6,500,000 to provide funds to construct, build, improve, furnish, and equip a Career and Technical Education addition to the existing High School/Middle School facility, including related remodeling; and to construct, build, furnish, and equip a Wrestling/Multipurpose Room addition to the existing High School/Middle School facility, including related support spaces and remodeling; and to improve the site?

The second public meeting on the proposed $6.5 million construction project will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23 at the Perry Performing Arts Center, and the third will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 at the Perry Performing Arts Center.
