School board meeting to talk 10-year plan

The Board of Education is meeting this week to talk about its 10-year plan that assumes the district will need about $896 to maintain its facilities throughout the decade.

When the plan was presented to the Board of Education for approval, commissioners said close to $900 million sounds like a lot of money, but the numbers were comparable to prior 10-year plans.

However Commissioner Sandra Lee Fewer requested the board meet again to discuss it further before adopting the plan.

The plan also assumes the district will ask voters for more than $500 million in bonds starting 2011 to keep around 75 facilities up to ADA standards and keep up with enrollment demands, among other needs such as natural wear and tear.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at 555 Franklin Street.
