How does ongoing school maintenance fit into the need for RR?
LAUSD maintenance and operations staff work hard to keep our schools in adequate working condition with limited resources. The District is funded to perform regular, routine and general building maintenance, however due to systems aging over time and the impact of decades of inadequate funding and overcrowding, many building systems and components can no longer be maintained and need to be replaced with new updated systems now. In fact over $50 Billion of unfunded school facility needs have been identified, and the list of needs continues to grow every year. Without RR, facilities improvements would not be made -- facilities would merely be maintained, and patchwork, band-aid solutions would need to put in place to try and help our school buildings be able to adequately operate.
