2017 SIP Update
2017 SIP Update
Brenda Ivey
Thursday, December 28, 2017

HI District Staff Members,

Below is our new, more informative bond report format.  

A few Extras to Note:

  • On January 5th we will start our district-wide committees to begin planning for the equipment, technology, and furniture components of the bond.  Two staff members from each site will meet with me for lunch at the Coliseum.   Those members will help keep the sites informed as we move forward.
  • The district is on the fastest schedule legally possible to ensure that EMS and Safe Rooms start as ASAP!  It takes MONTHS to get these things in place, but we are not wasting a day to ensure that we break ground in the Spring – as promised -- (Please see: Toby Dawn the Christmas Elf)
  • We had the LAWTON CAN Page to share information (it is still there, to keep us honest), but we have added the LAWTON SIP Page to store all updates and information as we move forward – it just launched, so it is not fully populated:  http://www.lawtonps.org/lawton-sip-2017

District staff members have worked extremely hard to move as fast as possible.  We owe it to you to deliver on this bond and to keep you informed.
