Anyone want to manage the $2.1 billion facilities bond that voters just approved to fix up San Diego Unified schools? The district is advertising for an executive director who will coordinate repair and construction work, work with advisory committees, and report back to the school board about how the bond is being managed. The salary is undecided. Oh — and you have to have a California driver’s license and be unflustered by “walking over rough or uneven surfaces at construction sites and during inspections.”
How the bond will be managed is a major question as the school districts plans for a flood of new funding under Proposition S. The last bond, Proposition MM, suffered early disorder, delays and mismanagement before the district enlisted Lou Smith as a manager, who is widely credited with putting the bond back on track.
