Climax Springs Schools Need $3 Million Fix
CLIMAX SPRINGS (AP) - Climax Springs school officials are considering how to respond to a report that the district needs more than $3 million in improvements.
School officials say they've known for years that the school campus, built in 1938, needed repairs. But voters have rejected three proposed bond issues in the last six years.
Superintendent Michael Diekmann told KSPR that the district hired an independent engineering firm to specifically detail the district's needs. He says telling voters exactly what needs to be done might convince them to support a future bond issue.
Diekmann says the district will have to decide whether to make repairs as it can afford them, or go back to the voters.
