The Chandler Unified School District governing board has hashed out details of a proposed $91.6 million bond issue.
The board met Wednesday to work on the proposal, which would fund school renovations and construction. The bond issue also would cover completion of the new Perry High School, where construction costs unexpectedly went up $6 million.
Board members will vote on the proposal on Wednesday.
In previous meetings, board member Karen Clark had said she would prefer not to have another bond election in two years, which has been the district trend.
Terry Locke, a district spokesman, acknowledged the concern. “That’s the thing all districts wrestle with: How far into the future can you look?” Locke said.
Jeanette Polvani, associate superintendent, said the administration has responded to the board’s request by raising cost estimates for four planned elementary schools.
Board member Bob Rice said the new estimates could prevent the board from
asking voters for additional funding.
