Letter: Improve learning space for IC students
Please vote yes on Sept. 12 to approve funds for a plan that improves learning spaces for all of students in the Iowa City Community School District.
This plan will add space where needed and will impact literally every building throughout the school district. Growth in our district — along with building needs that must be addressed (as basic as handicap accessibility issues, and air conditioning) — have left our schools with urgent needs. A child’s learning environment should not depend on ZIP code or on the age of his or her school.
Join me in approving this bond measure and in supporting candidates such as Ruthina Malone and Janet Godwin, progressive candidates who are ready to move forward in this district.
This district grows by 200-300 students per year. We must move forward with progress.
