Why isn’t the district covering turf replacement, track resurfacing and stadium improvements with its capital outlay fund?

Covering turf replacement, track resurfacing and stadium improvements with bond funds allows the district to cover other school building needs with its capital outlay fund. Earlier this year, the district collected a needs list from principals and hopes to address many of these requests with its capital outlay fund. These maintenance and improvement items at three high schools are a significant expense and would restrict the amount of money available for necessary projects at schools throughout the district if covered by the capital outlay fund.
