School district needs more money

The San Francisco Unified School District is preparing to go to voters with an approximately $500 million bond in 2011 to renovate its facilities.

The roots of the proposal came before the district's board tonight in the form of a 10-year capital plan that calls for spending about $850 million over the next ten years, Chief Facilities Officer David Goldin said.

However, the board also heard a report tonight indicating that the district would be facing an $83 million deficit by fiscal year 2011-2012.

The board will vote on the capital plan in December.
