RUMOR OF THE WEEK (or: Myth Busting)
There is a rumor circulating that the District plans to sell the old Tonalea campus at 68th St. & Oak to a charter school.
This is false. The property is not for sale at all. As stated above, it will be converted to sport fields with a bathroom facility.
This week's second rumor involves SUSD procurement processes - the ways in which the District selects and hires architects and construction companies to design and build our new school buildings.
You may have heard an internal review of those processes is underway.
This is partly true. A review is underway, but by an external firm, not the District. In the interest of transparency and to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent with the utmost integrity, SUSD's General Counsel has enlisted the help of an outside attorney to examine the procurement of services related to the 2016 bond.
