Off base?
I don't think you need the 8 ball for that one. Because of the dysfunctional relationship of the BOE and BOCC, the BOE has to utilize the space they currently have before they can even think about leaning on the BOCC for funds for a new ES. Since the Cuthbertson ES was next on the list when the economy and housing imploded, stands to reason that is where they will go. Especially given the continuation of the construction in pre-implode developments such as Millbridge, Lawson and Cureton that have been on the books for years.

If I had a crack with your 8 ball, I would see what it says about the next MS/HS going in Wesley Chapel...

Its going to take bonds to get any new schools built. I don't believe that bond issue for new schools has a snowballs chance of passing now any time soon. I know I won't ever vote to give them a dime to build an outhouse from here on out. They may be back in 5 years trying to figure out how to get more MCRs on site.

Perhaps now we can unite to make progress we all agree on. Call me an starry-eyed optimist....

With the amount of open seats still available and the bickering between the two boards as it is, I'd wager we're a decade away from a new cluster being built. Gonna have to make it with what we have for now.

Thanks for mentioning that Raith, I should have put this in my previous post, because this is one area of good that I hope comes out of this really messy process. I did not know the state of some of these older schools prior to this and really hope they are given as much, if not more, priority than the building of new schools here in the short term. There are kids and teachers in those buildings too, and they deserve the same amount of care and attention that is afforded the newer schools.

None of these people will be in their seats after their respective terms are up. I'd be surprised if any run and if they do, chances of them getting re-elected are slim, unless you are Stewart, they love him in his district, he's hero that took on the rich westside meanies.

Same for the BoCC, three are up in November an only 1 is running. He won't get re-elected.

Any future schools are going to come from bonds, so the voters will decide. This battle has left some realyl deep scars. I agree it might be decades before we see any new schools, but it won't be because of the boards. The voters aren't going to give either group the satisfaction of any monies after all of this. I know I won't support any bonds for any school buildings unless all schools are fixed and all schools have equal facilities. That might decades to accomplish.

Very good point JLat. You are right that with the atmosphere so toxic right now any discussion of the topic would incite the creation of dozens of Facebook groups. The problem is you can't drop buildings from the sky and that process typically takes many years, so they probably aren't going to be able to wait forever.
