Back at the end of April, Mount Diablo Unified School District trustees voted to divide $40 million between the district’s six comprehensive high schools to be used for facilities and equipment upgrades. College Park’s share works out to a hefty $6.7 million. Now the school community needs to figure out how to spend it.
The list of ideas for the $6.7 million include a new coat of paint for the whole school, baseball dugouts, new chemistry labs, more campus bathrooms and a teacher’s lounge. Tell us in the comments what you think College Park High School should do with the money.
The windfall comes from “restructuring” Measure C money, which is already paying for power, water and sewer lines to the athletic fields, new windows and doors for the school's J and H wings, and technology upgrades, including campus-wide wifi.
If you are part of the College Park community, and you want to chime in on the suggestions now under consideration, here’s a place to get more information and provide feedback. The final decision will be made by the College Park School Site Council at the end of May.
