ENCINITAS: School district will ask voters about renovation
Voters in the Encinitas Union School District will decide in November whether to allow the district to borrow as much as $44.2 million for renovation work and technological upgrades at its nine campuses.
Trustees voted 4-1 Tuesday to put the bond measure on the ballot this fall, saying it was vital for the district to have modern classrooms.
SUNANA BATRA --
Before Encinitas Union School District trustees consider on June 29 whether to place a 30-year, $44 million bond measure on the November ballot, taxpayers must require the list of "specific needs" and "precise costs" for this loan that the district is asking taxpayers to bankroll.
After viewing how the board and superintendent operate June 1, I am sounding the alarm to fellow Encinitas residents: These folks have a completely half-baked plan to continue reaping taxes from us and throwing that money at projects without determining the district’s true needs. MORE.
And from a blog reader:
Get this; when [Batra] from NCT asked under public questioning
what the $44 million is for, the Superintendent told her; we'll try
and have the language ready by next month, less than 90 days before the election.
If you know the number is $44 mil, then you know in detail what you
need the $44 for...don't you?
If you do know, why aren't you telling the public and the parents what
the money is for?
