construction updates

The following information is provided by Pilot Grove C-4 School District as a service to its patrons. If you have any questions or need additional information, please call Ashley Groepper, Superintendent at (660) 834-6915 or email

Secure doors

Construction is now complete on the exterior doors.  New entrance doors have been added to the elementary and middle school wings as well as a new set of exterior doors at the commons.  These new doors provide a more secure exterior as well as provide a better weather block with double pane glass to keep the cold out; which is incredibly nice on those cold winter days!

ballot language bond information

Shall the Board of Education of the Pilot Grove C-4 School District, Missouri, without an estimated increase in the current debt service property tax levy, borrow money in the amount of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,500,000) for the purpose of providing funds to implement safety and security improvements, including secure entrances, exterior and interior door upgrades, replacement of the bell system and fire alarms, and new cameras; to replace heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for increased energy efficiency; to complete improvements to the District’s outdoor athletic facilities; to the extent funds are available, complete other repairs and improvements to the existing facilities of the District; and issue general obligation bonds for the payment thereof?

If this proposition is approved, the adjusted debt service levy of the School District is estimated to remain unchanged at $0.7173 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation of real and personal property.
