A Step In The Right Direction

I reviewed the agenda for tonight's Beaumont Unified School board meeting. It looks like a relatively light schedule but there is one item worth noting. Item 15.2 asks the board to consider approving an agreement with PJHM Architects to study additional parking at Brookside Elementary. I think this is a step in the right direction and I applaud the administration for recognizing something must be done. I still believe since our schools were designed with safe pick-up and drop-off areas for school buses, we don’t need any new designs or construction. We just need to bring back district wide busing and encourage 100% participation. I’m sure this is falling on deaf ears but that has never stopped me before.
