Superintendent Terry George and others members of the Fayette County school board traveled to Charleston once again for a meeting with the School Building Authority, after the amendment for a controversial consolidation plan was shot down on Monday.
There George re-submitted his rejected amendment for a second look.
“The project that I submitted to the School Building Authority demonstrates what we plan to do with the reconfiguration of our school system, also presents a finance plan on how we plan to do that,” George says.
David Sneed, SBA executive director, cites the county’s failed bond as a reason the authority members were hesitant to accept George’s first attempted amendment.
“If they’re not supported, our experience has been those haven’t been successful projects, or they end up in litigation and they’re delayed,” Sneed says. “Our money’s tied up that other counties could be using at the same time.”
George says if his re-submitted amendment is accepted this time, he will be able to present the Fayette County Schools finance plan to the SBA. Sneed tells us that meeting will be in either November or December.
