After realizing we needed to make some changes to our construction plans, we started asking for input from our Kelso community. So far, we’ve held a public hearing, an open house, and our Superintendent Mary Beth Tack, along with Executive Director of Business & Operations Scott Westlund, have held three meetings with our schools and staff. And we’re not done, yet.

Another open house is scheduled for January 9th in the commons area at Kelso High School from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, and we’ll have a construction budget work session with our school board on January 14th that’s open to the public.

We really do want to know your thoughts. As you might imagine, we’ve already heard lots of questions, so we’ve started a post-bond FAQ list here. Have a question that’s not addressed there? Send it to us at
