I am concerned that one of the "financing options" is the lease-back option which PAUSD has proposed for the Paly Gym.

The lease back option is NO BID. In other districts where this has happened - including Poway where Kevin Skelly was previously - the developers begin to control the agenda. One this genie is put of the bottle we will be at the mercy of the contractors. In other districts they have never ending construction and constant bond issues.

No bid and lease back enhances the power of whomever picks the contractor which is Kevin Skelly and the incumbent school board.

This action has the power to destroy democratic school governance by injecting contractors and their money into it.

NO LEASE BACK AND NO BID FOR CUBBERLEY.

Once the options are presented, and are hashed over in people's minds, do they go to the vote to select one? Does the Palo Alto public get a say in this at all?
