Editor: Seriously people, think back six years. Cheryle Beaumont was at the helm.
Remember all the spending that was going on to reconfigure H.D Stafford to a middle school, the buying of the Langley Christian elementary school for the Fundamental students to have their elementary school, the renovations which had to be done, and a whole science lab was put in to make a high school from the relatively new existing Langley Fundamental elementary school.
Then there was the $1 million donation to the new Langley Events Centre from the school district. Could we have really afforded that sum? I think not.
We parents asked what the cost was for this big changeover at Stafford from a high school to a middle school. We still do not know the amount.
Then it comes out as an oversight, and no one knew. I find that really hard to believe.
And the ghost spending kept on.
I look forward to the majority of these trustees now going into overdrive, and putting the overspending behind them.
Good luck to the Langley Board of Education and I, for one, can’t wait to welcome our new superintendent. It can’t be soon enough.
