10:56 pm
resolution normally i'm curious on this one this the reason was the start data was required by the grant and for the downtown high school for $19,000 and this has been in motion since august 2016 that's that months ago we have been on a contract that we didn't have approved or funding for i want to know what happened here. >> good evening commissioners assistant superintendent the information i can get the specific grant information if you want a followup that is a grant the grant is not final list and the work is planned for example, you know that downtown is a project based learning school they actually plan the projects and start the projects at the beginning of the semester we believe that is a little bit long for this and he agree with
10:57 pm
you and i can correct that it is just an example of a grant not finalized and having the plan to start work. >> if you have a grant for a postage that is done at the end of year you should have the funding in place before you start the project to my point i mean whether the point is based or not you can't have work we contract with people without knowing how to pay for it or a contract approved and you know what i mean that is a little bit more egregious seven months a a long time whether you know you're paying for a mr. starr project. >> agreed commissioner that i'll move and work with the school to pasture they correct that they'll have to do rely on the grant funding this year to
10:58 pm
pay for next year's actually plan a year in advance with the particular projects that's what i'm going to advise them. >> in the future i'd like to see more of a reason than the grants said so. >> understood >> any others discussions on this item if not ms. casco roll call vote on the severed item roll call vote. >> thank you ms. eng ms. zaragoza mr. cook mr. haney ms. mendoza-mcdonnell no thank you dr. murase ms. norton mr. sanchez mr. walton thank you thank you 6 i's. >> thank you section e superintendent proposals for action one proposal item one 7321 sp one for the
