What is so great about the approved $66 million plan the board unanimously approved on 1/30/01? Lots!
It addresses urgent short-term need at Weber (10 percent increased enrollment for 9/01 and again in 9/02). It also provides for the classrooms needed at Guggenheim and Manorhaven for 9/01. Additionally, the plan also deals with the long-term needs given the ever-increasing student enrollment. Thus, it ensures our kids will continue to get a quality education.
The plan is sound educationally and fiscally responsible,. Given the lower interest rate and $22 million less in borrowed funds, we will be saving approximately $2 million per year over last year's bond. Furthermore, through focused renovations, the level of disruption our kids will have to suffer will be minimized.
When the bond is put to a community vote on 3/20/01, please support our kids and vote YES.
