Doug Whitt of Southwest Securities advises board at Monday’s meeting. A careful review of the vote is followed by careful discussion of finance and bond sale last Monday.

CROSBY – At last week’s Crosby ISD board meeting, the returns of the bond elections having been canvassed and the plan for finance and sale of the bonds has begun in earnest. The school board is moving with deliberation and thoughtfulness.

One of the prime finance specialists for Southwest Securities was advising the board on May 20. Not all of the bonds will be sold at once and the money demand will take place as construction demands. The construction is expected to take place over a three year cycle.

The board also called Coach Jeff Riordan to the podium to talk about the needs of the high school stadium for a new turf. A plan was approved to replace the turf and keep as much field for practice meanwhile, on a 7 to 0 vote.

The board voted to solicite a program manager or program management firm for the provision of professional services in connection with the district’s construction projects.

In other business the board took careful review of the Curriculum Department especially on the subject of Spanish and will offer new courses, eventually.
