District Expected to OK Disney Agreement

January 13, 1998|VANESSA DeRUYTER

Anaheim City School District is expected to approve an agreement tonight that would bring a $2.1-million payment in developers fees from the Walt Disney Co.

The fees are to come from existing and future expansions of the Disneyland Resort.

District officials said the payment will help alleviate some needs due to overcrowding, but will "barely dent" projected costs for building schools.

The district is eligible for construction of eight more schools, at an average cost of $8 million each.

Crowded conditions have already caused all 22 schools in the district to run on a year-round schedule; double sessions are under consideration.

The district also will attempt to eliminate overcrowding by asking voters in April to approve a $48-million bond measure to fund the construction and modernization of classrooms.
