The SCS board approved a $13 million building package. What do you think?

I'm glad it was all approved. I'll pay the extra taxes to give our kids the best!

I believe some should have been approved right now, but some should have waited. I'll tell you which ones in the comments.

They should not have approved any of the projects. This needs more discussion.

I believe some of the projects are of an imminent need. For example, putting lights on the baseball field. Because there are lights on the softball field, that could be a Title IX issue and should be addressed immediately. Also, if annual pool repair is costing the same amount as a replacement that is a justifiable cost. However, I feel like approving the entire package at once could constitute reckless spending (particularly in the way it was done to avoid referendum). The issues should have been triaged appropriately.
