Before you guys go spend $600,000 on fancy air purifiers, why don't you investigate how loud they are when they are operating. It would be a shame if they were too loud for a classroom setting and the teachers would be forced to turn them off making them an expensive brick.

“The new alternative also proposes setting aside $35 million from future Measure I1 bond sales . . . “ This is another way to hang on to $35MM and not build a school. Where is the funding for “4-6 classroom” additions coming from? Either build E10 or do not bond the $35MM, as was promised.

Before building a school, you need to calculate everything better. I recently wrote a paper on how educational budgets are formed, and the situation is sometimes dire. I used the educational resource Web Link to describe the analytical part of my assignment as it was hard. And seeing a lot of educational projects, I understood that to make serious decisions in the distribution of educational resources, you need to consider the consequences of spending that much money.
