Comments on 1/5/20 Poll - Condition of School Buildings

Many school districts have postponed needed building maintenance due to budgetary constraints.  How would you describe the physical condition of your school building?  

Answer Respondent
In the last year, the interior of the building has been painted. We are out of space, need a new cafe and a gym. However, we will only get a new cafe in the next 5 years due to a bond passing. We currently have 1,000 students and run lunch 9:00 AM - 1:15 PM. Anonymous
My building is less than 20 years old, but like life, things need to be repaired/renovated and totally brought up to code hard to get funds unless the situation is dire! Anonymous
Ongoing maintenance has been a BOE goal forever. They take great pride in their schools. Anonymous
Postponement...it’s a mantra Anonymous
It is in serious need of basic things the building is dirty Anonymous
great community support due to wise Board Members planning 5 to 6 years ahead in order to spread the expenses over said years Anonymous
We have kept up with work and implemented bond work overtime. Anonymous

The buildings can't speak for themselves; it falls to both ends of the governance team, those appointed and those elected, to ensure that they are well maintained: that they are welcoming, well equipped, user-friendly and safe. Putting off repairs that are perceived to be minor will surely guarantee that they become major. Maintenance and upkeep must be as important as curriculum and instruction. Anonymous
