Construction Advisory Committee?

Baby steps.

That’s what I would like to describe this new “construction advisory committee” GCS set up in response to its recent construction fiascos. See yesterday’s N&R for more.

“The committee would evaluate the design and construction of new and renovated schools to make sure the school system gets the best value for taxpayer money,” the article says. Darlene Garrett is the Board member who will serve on the committee.

“The committee would also include Guilford County Commissioner Mike Winstead; Gary Paul Kane, former chairman for the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition; Jeff Deal of Laughlin-Sutton Construction Co. of Greensboro; Robert Powell, an architect for N.C. A&T; and Elana Muhammad, a Greensboro resident,” the article says.

I have made it a campaign pledge to turn all construction-related activities to an outside entity so that GCS can focus on educating our children. But this is a ‘baby step’ and it certainly is a step in the right direction, at least for now.

E.C. 🙂
