Armed with half a billion dollars, Garden Grove Unified officials has begun refurbishing 65 campuses, a logistical nightmare that has sparked significant fallout.
According to report in the Orange County Register, Fountain Valley parents are particularly miffed about the process, which has forced the district to relocate some students and close a few schools.
Among the complaints:
- Poor communication. Some parents say the district hasn't been forthcoming about its plans and schedules meetings at inconvenient times. District officials say they're doing the best they can under extraordinary circumstances.
- Parking and traffic. City officials and parents say school bus stop changes and the merger of Monroe Elementary and Northcutt create congestion problems.
