SPRINGFIELD, Mo- A new task force will take a closer look at Springfield public school buildings.

Around two dozen parents, students, teachers and community leaders will begin their work next month. They will meet twice a month through October.

Task force members will look at all of the school district's facilities and provide feedback and recommendations to the school board and administration. They will determine which projects should be ranked as high priority. That will also include determining which of the improvements they believe voters would support in a future bond issue.

All of the meetings will be open to the public. Dates, times and locations will be posted. The plan is scheduled to be completed by October 15th.

The school board appointed two co-chairpersons to the task force Tuesday night. They are Bridget Dierks, vice president of programs for the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and David Hall,
the emergency manager for Missouri State University.
