(But don't tell students, it's not for them.)
At the February 22, 2010, Board of Education meeting the Board will approve (it's already on the Consent Agenda) a lease of office space at
"$19.50 per square foot with escalations of 2.5% annually."Odd, seems that lease information is missing a crucial detail, doesn't it?
How many square feet are being leased? If you were a Board member wouldn't you want to know that basic piece of information before you approved the lease? Apparently, not.
But for readers of this blog, here is the answer: 14,000 square feet.
14,000 x $19.50 = $273,000 per year with 2.5% "escalations"
What is this space used for?
It has 4 high tech labs, 2 ultramodern classrooms, a revolutionary video conferencing center and a Cyber-Café!
Wow. Think what students will get out of that facility!
But wait, it's not for students. Sorry, they are still in classroom trailers!
Just remember in this tight budget year that even though your students' classroom teacher may be cut, your students' bus transportation may be ended, or your school's media assistant may disappear, this "revolutionary" facility for administrators will be leased for another 5 years!
Here are the details on the space that is the subject of the Board action:
