On Monday, March 20, 2017 the Southland School Board approved the resolution for a capital facilities bond election to be held on June 6, 2017. The proposed changes to the Adams MS/HS would, if passed, provide renovations and additions to the MS/HS and move all programming from the Rose Creek building to Adams. To arrive at this conclusion, the School Board commissioned a Facilities Taskforce made up of community members from around the district. This taskforce examined current conditions of our facilities during meetings with an outside facilitator and made recommendations to the school board to consider moving forward. Information on this bond can be found on the Southland Public Schools website - Facilities Bond Information 2017. This website will be updated frequently and information will also be mailed out to district residents in the near future.
