‘Needs’ and ‘wants’ in LPS

I read the article “LPS mulls closing some elementaries” with great interest. It reported that due to a “$60 million premium on bond sales, district officials say they have the funds to build another elementary school.”

The district asked for, and received, the largest bond request ever in 2018. It should have been safe to assume that this request included everything the district needs. Apparently not. Apparently, returning the $60 million to taxpayers is not an option.

As the district officials consider their choices, I hope they are able to distinguish between a “need” and a “want.” I hope that they ask themselves “why wasn’t this included in 2018’s bond request?”
