Isn't the school officially still under court order? And did the court not rule that the district was unitary? This is nothing more than Walker seeing the end of his meal ticket and looking at ways to continue it. And of course Jim Ross is involved. That guy is nothing but a self serving POS.

LRSD has been out from under a federal court order for a couple of years now. Their state subsidy dollars are/have ended. That's why the district's need for money. The extension of a tax failed. They are trying a no vote bond issuance now.
The PCSSD & NLR districts are out of the court's cross hairs too. This group of advocates are trying something new here.
