Email from community member regarding Marian Delaney School

“Regarding the proposed bond issue. The Gersh Academy currently occupies Marian Delaney. How much revenue does the district stand to lose by its departure and the ability to lease or sell that property in the future? While I understand the importance of updating educational venues and the need to replace aging infrastructure, sports facilities seem to be high on the agenda in this bond issue. How will the community at large benefit from a sports complex on the Delaney property as opposed to a community center or a revenue generating tenant? Many of our district children attend schools outside the community in private and religious schools. The financial burden of the bond issue is significant and I wonder about the cost benefit of this plan.”
