    C. Bond Update Presenter: Daniel Gallagher

    Bond failed -- what we know -- escalated costs. Every 6 months, it adds 4% of an increased cost in labor and materials. What was 398.5 million is now 413,867,000

    What we know because the bond failed -- transportation costs, portable costs -- additional costs to the operating fund.

    What if -- if the bond fails or the board doesn't call for another bond election - rezoning, bussing elementary students to other campuses, increasing number teacher floating

    Board needs to decide what they want to do?
