New Student Investment Plan Voting Date Set
In a Special Board Meeting on March 25, Shawnee Public Schools board members decided to delay the special election of the 2020 Student Investment Plan until August 25, 2020.
The special election had been originally scheduled for April 7. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oklahoma State Election Board had advised the Shawnee Public School Board to reschedule the election.
"Although canceling the election is left up to each local entity, I cannot in good faith move forward with the election. The health of our community is our top priority, and risking anyone’s life is simply not an option," Dr. April Grace, superintendent, had stated in a letter to the community earlier in the week.
