But CPS board member Karen Schwarzwalder said ramifications of waiting a year could be serious."We are not convinced that we would just be bumped a year," she said."I think that the state funding is tenuous in general.
"We've already lost ground in some rules changes the state has made," she said, referring to recent legislation that requires school districts to spend local funds at the same time as state support on school construction projects.
Previously, state money could be used first, allowing local tax revenue to earn interest before it was to be spent.CPS officials say the new rule could result in the loss of up to $4-million in interest income over a 10-year period.
Regarding residents' desire for detail, Schwarzwalder defended the district's planning process.She said specifics will be available when architects begin their work on specific buildings, and there will be opportunities for public comment then.Mark Real, who recently left the top spot with the Ohio Children's Defense Fund to head up a new child advocacy organization, agreed that the district should not wait.
"It would be nice to get some (schools) started so neighbors can see what they look like," he said, adding the he feels confident that "the state will stand behind its promise of funding."
