I took a lot of classes through LPC in the business park, and think that Hacienda complex would better serve students and educational programs than it would serve the admin. Centrally located. Easy to reconfigure internally as programs evolve. Keep the admin at the old location and let them use the old facilities until they can get remodeled. Maybe we have too much admin in the district.

BUT, overall it's hard to argue with the sale and acquisition. It does make a lot of economic sense. But the admin is putting itself above the educational mission...but that's not surprising.

The problem with this sort of deal is that selling property to fund activities only works for so long. Eventually, you can’t keep burning assets.

With this administration, they come first, not students or staff. Yes the highest offices are are seasoned professionals, but much of the office staff is untrained and under supervised. This is 180* different from Parvin Ahmadi’s tenure, when the classroom always came first: think back to the layoffs of 2009. The district staff was decimated but classrooms were spared as much as they could be. I bet she would have moved student facilities to the business park and made do with the current property for as long as possible. And there are tons of K-12 classrooms that need repair, not just the big visible places that visiting schools (sports teams) see like our high school gyms, pools, and new science buildings.
