Carson City school board eyes redistricting, amended budget


The Carson City School District Board of Trustees on Tuesday will consider changing the boundaries of the district’s election areas to come into compliance with Nevada Revised Statute 386.205.

The discussion follows the city’s Board of Supervisors’ recent discussions to change current ward boundaries and voting districts to fall in line with the U.S. Census. The Board of Supervisors is considering its map at public meetings Dec. 16 and Jan. 6. The school district is beginning its process to change the manner in which trustees are elected to comply with the NRS.

Also Tuesday, the board could take action on the amended budget for the 2021-22 school year that includes revisions for the district’s certified enrollment figures, its audited fund balance, carry-forward amounts and recommended augmentations to certain funds. In May, the board passed a balanced budget with the district expected to receive $4 million from federal stimulus funding through 2023 for learning loss and revenue needs, according to fiscal services director Andrew Feuling.

In other items, the board will have an opportunity to interview candidates and possibly choose a parent representative for its Family Life Advisory Committee, change its ground lease agreement for its Greenhouse Project to include additional property at Carson High School to develop a composting and nursery production area for an extended term through Dec. 31, 2027, and discuss and take action on Superintendent Richard Stokes’ annual evaluation for the 2021 calendar year. Stokes has announced he will be retiring in June 2022 and the board is conducting a search to find its next superintendent.

The Board of Trustees meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Robert Crowell Board Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
