Leon School Board To Address Construction, Maintenance Policies

The Leon County School Board will be discussing the districts policies on construction and maintenance projects tonight.

School board officials will take public comment and talk about how the Leon County District awards construction and maintenance projects to companies. Officials will also discuss how the district chooses what projects it will undertake and which ones it won’t.  

The meeting comes as the district’s superintendent faces accusations he and other school officials steered construction projects to political donors.

The board had been anticipating an independent report on construction and maintenance projects stemming from the accusations. An anonymous group is claiming some district administrators and Pons steered several construction projects to companies that donated to his campaign account.

School board members won’t be voting on any projects at the meeting.  The board will meet at 6 this evening at the Howell building.
