Crane board to hold meeting at Gary Knox
The Crane Elementary School District governing board will be holding its board meeting at Gary A. Knox Elementary School on Tuesday in order to hold a recognition ceremony for the new campus garden.
The garden ceremony, which will recognize those that made the project possible, will begin at 4:15 p.m. with the regular board meeting beginning at 5 p.m.
In other meeting news, the district's Charter School Planning committee will ask the board to schedule a worksession and special meeting later this month in order for them to present information about a K-12 public charter school in the Crane Elementary School District and open the idea up for public comment. At that time the committee would like to make a recommendation for proceeding with the charter school.
Results from a survey earlier this year showed that the Yuma community mostly favored opening a K-12 public charter school focused in math and science in the Crane district.
Lastly, Mike Wicks, executive director of management services, will be recognized for being a recipient of the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association.
