Angela Dressel, a member of the Christina School District Neighborhood Schools Committee, Hector Figueroa of the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League and Jea Street of the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center addressed commission members on educational issues.

"Even though the referendum passed, I'm still very concerned," said Angela Dressel, a member of the district's neighborhood schools committee who voted no.
"One of the biggest concerns is that the district did not handle renovations well in the past.I don't know how all of a sudden they will handle all the renovations plus build two new schools."
It could take until 2006 to receive state funding for all the district's improvement projects, said Assistant Superintendent Capes Riley.The projects would not be completed until about 2008. : The News Journal : LOCAL : Voters to decide on new Christina Schools plan, 13 April 2002 [cached]
But Angela Dressel, a member of the district's neighborhood schools committee, said she has no confidence in the district because it failed to come up with a neighborhood schools plan that would end long-distance busing.
The district's plan to send students to schools closest to their homes would maintain existing grade configurations and attendance boundaries.It was rejected by the state Board of Education.
Christina has until May 27 to submit a plan that contains grade configurations required by the law, state officials said.Dressel and other parents said the district should wait for a decision on that plan before going out for another referendum.
"The way the district handled it, I have no confidence that they are going to use our money properly," she said."The buildings need to be renovated, but the public has lost all confidence in the reputation of the district."
Parent Ruth Kelly, however, said she plans to vote for the referendum.She said she's discouraged that some voters can't look past their problems with the district to do what's best for children.
"These school buildings are so old," she said."They showed us pictures of a boiler room that looks like it's from the 1930s.Over time, some of these things will be safety issues and we'll have more trouble."
