SDCTA supports Prop M - Dehesa School District Bond Measure, 2010
SDCTA supports Dehesa School District's bond measure as the District has demonstrated adequate need for facility upgrades. An independent assessment of the District's facilities found that several of its older buildings are in need of major repairs and maintenance. Additionally, the District, although technically K-8, has not been able to accommodate students in grades 7-8 for several years. The District believes that it is the will of the community for local middle school facilities to be provided for all students. Priority of bond financing has been properly assigned to replacement and renovation of the worst facilities outlined in the facilities needs assessment and creation of new middle school facilities. However, SDCTA does recommend that the District place greater importance on budgeting funds for future maintenance and major facility repairs. In addition, SDCTA recommends that the District hire a project manager for its bond program and that going forward, the District place greater importance on budgeting funds for maintenance and major facility repairs.
