The meeting included this question and answer (http://www.purereform.com/edcomm_041409.html):

"Jean Fink: When we find a permanent home for the IB program, we are looking at extensive renovations.

Mark Roosevelt: Moving the IB program is three years off. What I understand is a high priority of this board (Career and Technology Education) CTE programming and I recommend using bonding money for that."

However, isn't the whole idea of the current facilities planning process that a 10 year plan is being devised so that all of the needs and all of the costs are being considered together, rather than taking a piecemeal approach? The amount budgeted for CTE could and should differ depending on the extent of other expected expenditures, even if those expenditures are a year or so off (although students are scheduled to move in 3 years, renovations for their new building would of course have to take place before the move date).
