The Problem
San Diego Unified has fallen behind on a plan to tackle millions in school repairs. Delaying those repairs means it will cost an estimated $137 million more to get schools in shape.
What Happened
Taxes are bringing in less bond money than expected. The school board decided to put other things before repairs. And district has spent less on repairs to save money in its day-to-day budget.
What’s Next
The school board is exploring whether to ask taxpayers to pay for another bond. But it could be harder to get support this time, facing criticism that it broke its promises to maintain schools.
