Look at the "Comps" Supplied by the District!
Utilizing the data supplied by the Bloomfield Hills School District (see http://www.bloomfield.org/files/campaign/hs_comparison_study.pdf) it is readily apparent that our buildings are larger and more expensive than any "peer" group. Even an attempt to "cherry-pick" new schools. built over the last 8 years, our Leadership fails miserably to make a case for our monster buildings. The data also has been modified by the District to account for construction inflation, a function that I was unaware they had the expertise to perform. Even with the opportunities to skew the analysis, our District is unable to make a case for this size of a building program.
