Q:  Four years ago, Big Creek and Pine Ridge were included in the bond proposal, two years ago they not included, and now they are included on this proposal.  Why the inconsistancy?  Why should they pay off the Foothill campus loan when they have their own K-8 schools?
A:  Good question!  The difference between these bond proposals was what the funds would be used to support.  Pine Ridge and Big Creek students do attend Sierra High School.  If the bond proposal significanly affected the high school, Pine Ridge and Big Creek were included in the vote.  Although Measure O pays off the Foothill campus,  that loan is paid from the general fund, and because the outcome so significantly impacts the high school programs, the fair and equitable course is for Pine Ridge and Big Creek to participate in the vote.
