More than a year ago, the first meeting of a steering committee to study USD 257 schools brought together dozens of residents with different ideas on what was needed. They seemed to sort themselves into three groups.
The yes group supported the failed 2014 bond issue that would have built new elementary and high schools for $50 million. They hoped to try again.
The no group opposed the 2014 bond issue and thought the districts facilities could be improved, rather than building new. Others thought nothing need to be done.
