The Panorama School Board discussed taking next steps to hold a special election for renewal of the District’s Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) during their regular meeting Monday.

The District’s 10-year levy is set to expire in 2022, which voters can authorize for up to $1.34 per thousand dollars of assessed property valuation. The Board also approved holding a homecoming dance on October 3rd in the junior high gym, after a presentation was given by Student Council President Isaac Jarnagin. Superintendent Shawn Holloway says public health measures will be taken, such as temperature readings of all the students in attendance. Holloway also explains why “mask requirements” was included on the Board’s agenda, “I just want to make sure we give our Board members a chance to revisit the topic, share any relevant data with them. So there’s no changes to our policy that we have in place, but just an opportunity to allow them to have conversations about COVID and our District specifically.”

The District currently has no mask requirements. The Board also approved a family movie night request from the booster club, 2020-2021 fundraiser requests as presented, hiring an additional custodian and two additional cooks, and offering transportation to all three-year-old students.
