Oh dear, first a $20,000,000 donation to Paly and now a $250,000 donation to Jordan. We seriously need to remove this board and teachers before they do anything else to ruin this district.

@ numbers,
You seriously think those donations or the nearly $400 million bond fund parents voted for themselves had anything to do with the board?

On the other hand, the fact that the money wasn't spent to also renovate Cubberly but the district nevertheless sent away Foothill to build their $40million campus in Sunnyvale, does.

@Moderator - May I suggest, respectfully, to consider adding this thread to the Schools& Kids category? (it is around town, now).

"walk path around the fields area" at Jordan will be fantastic. My children are tired of stepping in dog feces. Jordan field is a huge off-leash dog toilet when no one is around on weekends and evenings.
