The Baker School District will face a wide range of challenges in asking voters to approve a $48 million bond measure in November, 5J Board members learned Tuesday night.

In a meeting that lasted just a little more than two hours, directors Kevin Cassidy, Andrew Bryan, Katie Lamb and Julie Huntington listened to consultants and Superintendent Mark Witty review the various details of the process. Director Chris Hawkins was absent.

Witty first presented a summary of surveys conducted by The Nelson Report. Melissa Martin of Salem, survey research director with the firm, had been scheduled to join Tuesday’s work session but she was sick and unable to make the trip, Witty said.
