CSD Sells Dog Park Land To Church

Four controversial issues were settled and put to rest Monday evening during a four-meeting of the Coeur d'Alene school board. The board decided 4-0, with Christa Hazel abstaining, to opt out of the state's new Wi-Fi contract and move forward its own local contract to improve technology throughout the entire district like they told the taxpayers they would during the bond election earlier this year. Trustees also voted unanimously to sell the district's Northshire property to Lutheran Academy of the Master for $480,000 to help pay off a new district office. They split their vote 3-2 on the adoption of the new Common Core curriculum that will be used, and also split 3-2 on rescinding a resolution passed in June that would obligate the district to engage in a statewide effort to strengthen Idaho's Right to Work laws/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you like/dislike direction of new school board?
