During a marathon meeting Monday, the ABC Unified School District board took a step closer to deciding how it will spend more than $6 million in building funds.
The seven-member board pared a list of 80 possible capital improvement projects, which had been complied for more than a year from suggestions of community and district representatives and the board members.
The remaining list of 25 projects includes a controversial issue that has simmered for a number of years over whether to build a gym, lockers and showers at Whitney High School, the district's college-preparatory school.
The board made no final decision but requested the district staff to return as soon as possible with a cost estimate for each of the 25 projects. The board is expected to then rank the projects in order of priority.
