School Administrators Get $1,700,000 Offices, Students Get None

Money to pay for the projects will come from Measure D, a $42 million bond passed in 2006 to pay for repairs and renovations of classrooms, schools and other education facilities.

Next time someone asks you to give and give for the schools, remember the $1.7 million dollars the school kids will never use.

There’s no mention of the fate of the old buildings that are unfit for administrators – will our kids end up attending classes in them?

Sixty years after the Pacific Grove Unified School District administration moved into military barracks at Fountain and Sinex avenues, the buildings are on their way to retirement.

Board members voted last week to build a new district office at the former community high school site, located near a field used by Pacific Grove Middle School.

The new building will be about 7,000 square feet, or about 1,000 square feet more than at the district office’s current location. Cost of the new district headquarters is estimated at $1.7 million.
