On a 3-1-1 vote, the board voted in favor of pursuing a performing arts center.
It was made clear during the meeting that as far as the superintendent and the school board were concerned (excluding Gustafson and Geramendi), the current condition of the schools did not warrant the use of the $4 million dollars remaining in bond money; even though the original bond was entitled the "School Repair and Construction Bond of 2006" (not the performing arts bond).

However, if you go on a tour of the CUSD school sites, you will find plenty of evidence that CUSD could use a large dose of maintenance and renovation.
In fact, if one tours/visits/walks the CUSD campuses there is plenty of evidence showing longterm neglect on the part of CUSD (the trustees and the superintendent) for not adequately maintaining its current facilities.

It doesn't appear (from looking at the evidence) that CUSD is equipped or prepared to add a performing arts center to it's list of facilities to manage, operate, or maintain.
