Recommendations by school district administrators for spending $10.8 million in state funds won approval this week by trustees for the Fairfield-Suisun School District – after an initial deadlock on delaying a decision on $3 million of the money and concerns by two trustees that not enough was known about the spending plans.
“I am not feeling very comfortable about taking action on this item tonight,” Trustee Pat Shamansky said Thursday. “This is something very different from what we usually vote on.”
“I don’t think, in general, it’s good governance,” she said.
Trustees usually are provided information at one meeting and then vote at the next, said Shamansky, who wanted the school board to continue the matter until the next meeting.
