EDUCATION

The first item on the Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustee’s agenda for Tuesday’s workshop is the 2018-2019 budget.

The budget discussions will include staffing allocations for 2018-2019, enrollment projections and new course requests.

Another key discussion at Tuesday’s meeting will be the board’s review of a bond counsel engagement letter with the international law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP of Austin.

That engagement letter lists the services to be provided by the firm regarding the sale of bonds, if approved by voters in the upcoming May 5 municipal election.

The firm would charge KISD a minimum fee of $20,000 for each sale of bonds, or $1 per each $1,000 in proceeds, up to $50 million — which would potentially be $50,000 in fees.

The board will discuss updates to the policy manual in the areas of employment, student safety and community relations, among others.

Also on the agenda for the board workshop is a discussion regarding commissioning a civil engineer to make renovations to the Harker Heights High School marching band practice area, which experiences regular ponding and flooding. Potential fees for the civil engineer would not exceed $5,000. No estimate is available yet for the actual renovations.

The board workshop begins at 6 p.m. at the KISD administration office, 200 N. W.S. Young Drive.
