School District Wish List Too Hefty

The Santa Barbara school district’s wish list for capital projects funded by bond Measure Q is about $194.4 million too hefty, according to a report issued by Telacu Construction Management earlier this month. Measure Q, passed in 2010, provides $75 million for secondary schools. (Measure R, passed at the same time, provides $35 million for elementary schools.) The school board — with the help of Telacu, hired to consult in June — must now prioritize the district’s needs.
