WCC School Board to Discuss Bond Sales

West Contra Costa Unified School District trustees will examine district bonds from 1998 to present at their Wednesday night meeting.

WCC School Board to Discuss Bond Sales

The bonds the West Contra Costa Unified School District has purchased the past 15 years will be the main topic of discussion at a board meeting on Wednesday night.

The district's Board of Education will gather at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Lovonya DeJean Middle School, 3400 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond.

The main item on the agenda is a discussion by the board of the various school bond sales the district has engaged in since 1998 to rebuild school facilities.

The discussion will range from qualified school construction bonds to the capital appreciation bonds that were detailed two weeks ago in a story on El Cerrito Patch.

The board will also discuss whether to hire a full-time construction architect for the Portola Middle School construction project. The Measure J bond project is currently in the bid process.

The funding for the architect would not exceed $75,000. It would be paid for with 2010 Measure D bond money.
