At a special board meeting on Monday, August 11, the Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose (BHM) School Board announced their decision to place a bond question on the November 4, 2014 general election ballot. This decision came after months and months of research and discussions with staff and district administrators.
Using an application and interview process, the BHM School Board selected Stan Vander Kooi to replace outgoing board member Dean Perry. Perry announced in June his decision to step-down from the board stating that he wasn't able to dedicate as much time as he felt was needed to serve on the board.

You can also contact Laura (Barta) Lindquist at 763-682-8783 or email@example.com to have one mailed to you.
