Superintendent Steve Lowder said the district has made difficult, hard decisions to end the “adult drama” and focus on kids. He said the district is well run, and for that the district got an improved bond rating.
He went on to address the need for a new district office, which was built in 1915 and its lack of ADA compliance: “I’m stunned that we haven’t been sued already. We will have to pay millions and millions in settlement fees so we can retrofit to be ADA compliant and then we’d move in a couple years after that. It would be millions wasted…it’s a ticking time bomb.”
