      Back to the drawing board for Quincy School Board

      The future of the Quincy public school buildings is back on the table.The Quincy School Board Wednesday night spent more than two hours discussing where to go from here to address the district's aging buildings.In the end, board members decided to put the topic on next week's agenda.The board wants to pay architects to design some visuals that would better showcase the board's plans to voters before they head to the polls."We've had a 2-month break," QPS school board president Stephanie Erwin said. "We came back tonight. We had a great discussion. We were talking about we do want to move forward with new construction or the idea was put out there to reconfigure what we currently have."The Quincy School Board withdrew a vote on the measure last December.The board still needs to reach an agreement on grade configurations and how to pay for it.Some board members favor a county-wide sales tax while others favor using bonds to pay for the upgrades.Erwin said if the measure were to appear on the November ballot, the board would need to make that decision by July.
