San Diego Unified’s new superintendent, Terry Grier, will likely be asked to promote not one school bond, but two, before the year’s end.
Grier was recently interviewed by the Greensboro News-Record. According to the article, the biggest task ahead of Grier before he departs the Guilford County Schools there is a $457 million school construction bond on the May ballot.
In San Diego, school board members have started discussing a similar bond. Few details have emerged yet, but a superintendent is typically considered key to promoting such measures. Here, the going could be tough, with some groups vowing opposition to new bonds after the last measure, Proposition MM, failed to meet their expectations.
