Four years ago while president of the LAPS School Board, I wrote a letter to the editor explaining the motivation for the 2009 school bond election.
In that letter, I appealed to the community to consider a significant bond in order to reverse a deteriorating trend; namely, that some of our key school facilities were in dire need of serious attention. Further, I stated that we could not afford major replacement of entire facilities; that we could only afford phased renovation or replacement projects to add years of useful life to our existing facilities.
A “frugal” 20-year facilities renewal plan was developed to prioritize and guide our attention and phased investments. The plan’s guiding premise was renovate and only when renovation is not cost effective was replacement to be even considered. The plan directed we concentrate on the high and middle schools first, followed by Aspen elementary. Priorities were also established to address corrective maintenance projects at all school sites.
