Is there an important project or improvement you feel was left off the list?

$219,000 for carpet at Shepard Hills? Is that a misprint? Sounds excessive!

Why would the playground at carrolton be updated by the school district as opposed to that at other elementary schools which are at least as out of date and have safety concerns? Other PTOs are fundraising for this to be done.
