LANCASTER — Antelope Valley Union High School District officials say they will postpone some construction projects, revise other building plans and try again to pass another school bond measure in the wake of voters’ rejection of the district’s $177.5 million bond measure. Had Measure E passed last week, officials planned to build two new high schools, complete construction of Eastside High, expand Quartz Hill High, and add two new science labs at Lancaster. The construction of Eastside High School’s administration building, theater/fine arts building and canopied entryway will be put on hold, as will the addition of the science labs at Lancaster. Quartz Hill High’s expansion will be done with modular buildings rather than the construction of permanent buildings. A new high school planned in southeast Palmdale will probably consist of modular buildings. “We are making adjustments as we go with our overall building program. Some projects are being put on hold, others are being modified. We will be adding modular buildings rather than permanent construction,” Deputy Superintendent Jeff Foster said. “Obviously, we will make another attempt to garner support from the community.” Measure E was supported by 52.2 percent of voters, short of the 55 percent needed to pass. The measure would have taxed property owners about $30 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. Westside Union School District’s $67.5 million bond measure also fell short, getting 52.3 percent of the vote, also short of the 55 percent required. High school district officials predict that enrollment will grow at some campuses to 4,000 students. The district is projected to grow by 1,000 students a year. “The big losers are the kids. That’s very unfortunate,” Foster said. “What we are trying to do here is serve children and provide everyone with facilities they need for their education. We are retooling and will plug forward.” Foster said existing funds from a 2002 bond issue and developer fees will pay for completing the balance of Eastside High, which includes classrooms, cafeteria, two gymnasiums, library and lab facilities. No decision has been made on when the district will try for another bond, but November 2007 might be a possible date, Foster said.
