Bond measure calls for win-win

-A A +A
By Gabriel Vasquez

The school board met Thursday to discuss issues related to the 20-Year Facilities Renewal Plan, approval of the FY08-FY09 budget, and school policies dealing with length of teacher contracts, employee directory listings and student cell-phone use.

“We had our fourth meeting with the county this week,” LAPS president Steve Girrens said. “It was a brainstorming session for possible ways to get assistance (for the 20-Year Facilities Renewal Plan). Some of the ideas range from what will be in it for both sides, it has to be a win-win.”

A potential trade-off would be to release land considered “dead property” to the county.

“Is it a win-win?” board member Allison Beckman asked. “Is it not good enough that you have schools that draw people here?”

LAPS Superintendent Mary McLeod explained that both the schools and the county must support each other’s efforts, and that all options must be explored in order to ensure the success of the upcoming bond measure.

“We’re looking at ways to do something where both of us come out clearly supporting one another,” she said.
