No new bonds while this board and superintendent are running things. And I am a person who usually will vote yes for school bonds.

Hopefully, voters will not continue to throw money at the schools given the level of incompetence in managing it. Stop voting in new school bonds without a defined need and hold the school board accountable. Existing bonds have already financed building several new school facilities including San Ramon High, Baldwin, Stone Valley, etc. At the same time, the high cost of housing has resulted in fewer families with young kids moving here. There should be a study to determine what the future needs are before any additional monies are spent. In the future, it may even be possible to repurpose some schools for other functions if there aren’t enough students.

I have no trust in the financial decisions of this school board or administration. Mr Matthews the Cal High PE teacher warned the district in Nov 2017 that a student would drown because of their financial decision to allow 47 students into the pool. In typical district behavior he was disregarded and 6 months later Ben Curry died in a pool with PE class size of 57. This news site should make public the meeting video/audio of Mr Matthews's statement before the board.
