33% of the profit? No problem — hey!

As I read these comments about more money being squandered by current and prior district leadership and Trustees, I get more angry of the following facts at Eastlake High: 1. Enrollment is over 3000 again, or about600 more than the campus maximum 2. Not enough textbooks - my son's AP History class is about 25 textbooks short. He does not have one and will have to wait 2-4 weeks to get his. 3. Ipads for 9th graders - Eastlake expected 717 freshman but 840 enrolled so they are short. They are scrambling to find additional ones but no ETA. 4. 9th graders are interspersed with 10th and 11th graders, so those with Ipads wont use them in those classes. 5. About 5 new portables on campus are still not ready. They were moved from Mar Vista and still need final upgrades and repairs. ETA 2-4 weeks. 6. Variuos construction projects still going on in and around campus. 7. The new left turn lane coming out of the front of school is still not ready. 8. Traffic is horrendous and the school is jammed tight. Its like Times Square or Champs Elysess on a Friday night. 9. Not enough chairs in some classes. My sons photography class has folding and lawn chairs that students are using. And Im hearing similar things from Olympian, Otay Ranch and Bonita. Does any district leadership or Trustee care about what is happening at schools? Or is it just about property deals and the money?! I would love to see a story of the end result of years of corruption and mismanagement at this district. It is happening at Eastalke and others schools. How has it directly impacted the foundation of our schoosl - teaching and learning! Eastlake High is what has happened!!
