By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Aug 29, 2015 – Parkland’s City Commissioners Friday were expected to accept a year’s delay in the construction of classrooms caused by School Board staff mistakes.
The School Board’s staff has been unable to get a mere eight classrooms built even though Parkland is paying for them.
To make matters worse, the schools staff now says they were wrong in estimating the cost of the classrooms. They can only build a maximum of seven (or six), not eight, portables for the $2 million Parkland is paying.
