The Carson City School District Board of Trustees on Tuesday will discuss the purchase of the 10-acre Lompa Ranch North Specific Plan Area near Robinson Street on the west side of Interstate 580.

In February, Superintendent Andrew Feuling said the district has a deadline of May 2025 to provide notice of intent to buy the property from the developer, which is offering the site to the district for educational purposes under certain provisions.

The purchase price for the land was not to exceed $2 million.

Feuling said in February district rezoning needs would need to be examined, and the district is in need of a K-8 building.

Also Tuesday, Chief Financial Officer Spencer Winward will present the tentative budget for the 2023-24 school year. Last month, Winward informed trustees early projections showed the district expected to see an increase of approximately $8.9 million in revenue, providing Carson with a surplus. However, there are still some determinations to make with funding needs, and there is an overall enrollment decline expected to affect its budget.

Carson High Principal Bob Chambers will provide an annual report on the school’s programs, supports for students and celebrations highlighting staff and student accomplishments from the 2022-23 school year.

CHS library media specialist Ananda Campbell will give an update on school libraries.

The board also could approve amendments to the bylaws of the Carson City Schools Foundation. Last month, foundation President Steve Reynolds and secretary/treasurer Casey Gilles gave an update on the nonprofit’s fund drive.

The board meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Robert Crowell Board Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St. For information, visit
