Eq has 1400+ posts, was he ever called on the carpet before his leaving the district? Paula can answer as to what was deemed inappropriate, I think the 'deemed' inappropriate exchange was between Paula and Eq.. Do you think she will WWWarrior?
if you want to change the landscape of this village, go out and beg a high tech company to build an R&D facility on the old Greenhills High School property. My guess is you'll get more bang for the tax payer buck that'a way.
Paula, is the sliver of Wyoming within the district boundary part of this community or part of Wyoming's? You see one solution, building new. Alternatives exist, which have not been PBL'd, i.e. investigated, looked into, discussed, analyzed, etc.. You're asking for passage of a bond levy, will you turn around and ask for the expiring emergency levy to become permanent? How is placing an ever increasing tax burden on property owners beneficial to this community?
"To change the question posed to our community is most unfair to the voters and is a distortion of the truth." Really Paula? Asking a question other than you accept is unfair and a distortion? Apparently Paula, you are quite willing to limit the tax payer to only your question and answer. It is simply thinking outside your, as opposed to PBL, box of solutions.
"WHEREAS, at the present time, it is estimated that total project costs for the School District's participation in the Program will be $99,746,853 and it will be necessary for this Board of Education to issue approximately $61,500,000 of bonds (the “Bonds”), which is an amount not less than the School District's estimated portion of Basic Project Costs ($50,870,895), and the cost of other improvements to school facilities (known as locally funded initiatives), including (without limitation) equipment, furnishings and site improvements ($10,629,105); and
WHEREAS, this Board of Education proposes to submit to the electors of this School District at the election to be held on the 8th day of November, 2016, the question of issuing the Bonds of this Board of Education in the principal amount of $61,500,000 for the purpose of ......." Secondly, an emergency levy will expire in December of 2019 and will need to be dealt with.
WWWarrior, if this bond levy passes, it's a moot point at ever looking at alternatives; the property owners are on the hook for 37 years. Territorial transfer, off the plate. In your view is there ever a point at which the property owner is pressed 'enough'? Is it conceivable, if desired by the property owners in the sliver of Wyoming within the district boundary, to ever request and be granted a transfer into Wyoming? Could the BOE even entertain the idea? Your assessment of problem of this districts ills will not be overcome by new construction. It is and remains a family problem. And whatever Paula et al. think, new buildings are not going to over come that. New buildings will not educate these kids in some new and fancy way, this district will not spend its way into a 'better' outcome.
