On May 15, Superintendent Kent Kultgen told the Independent Record that "everything we’re doing is super transparent" regarding the school facilities bond.

Here's an example of "super transparent":

On Jan. 9, the School District Community Advisory Council discussed what to do about Central and if it could be a school again. A member said, "The district is having someone look for other opportunities for Central." Kultgen asked if it could be used for administration and a school, but they determined it was not big enough and discussed what it would take to make Central salable. According to the meeting’s minutes, Kultgen said, “There are people interested in the land.”

At the Feb. 18 school board meeting, a trustee mentioned the possibility that Central could be sold, indicating there was active interest. Betsy Baur asked, "What about transparency?!" and said if there was interest in buying or selling Central, why didn’t the rest of the board know about it? Kultgen responded by saying it was just talk, as if he and other board members had not seriously discussed it a month earlier.

Now Kultgen claims Central will be a school again -- but the bond proposal document says “the Central facility could be used for another district purpose or sold.”

Super transparent!
