Thompson School District to Offer Community Telephone Town Hall This Thursday, August 18

Thompson School District has announced that it will host a community telephone town hall this coming Thursday, August 18, at 6:30 p.m.

Hosted by Board of Education president Lori Hvizda Ward and superintendent Dr. Stan Scheer, the town hall will provide an opportunity for members of the community to ask questions regarding two proposed ballot measures that the board is considering for placement on this November’s election ballot – an $11 million mill levy override and a proposed $288 million bond that would address facility needs throughout the
district.

Registered voters within the school district will receive a “pre-conference”
phone call a few days ahead of time with further details about the upcoming town hall. Residents will then receive a follow-up phone call at the time of the event inviting them to join the conversation.  A dedicated toll-free phone number will also be available for participants to dial into the session manually.

Participants in the telephone town hall will be able to ask questions that they have about the proposed measures under consideration. A team of moderators will work with participants to collect their questions and forward them along to Mrs. Hvizda Ward and Dr. Scheer, who will then address the questions live on the phone call.
