School district has trouble managing small funds

-A +A
First let me say that I would be the first one to vote for a general obligation bond like Measure J to provide funds for schools and school improvements for the Western Placer Unified School District and the schools of Lincoln. However, let me also say that under no circumstance will I vote for it while the present inept board and administration is running the school district. For a basic example of how inept the school district is run, I just got a notice from my bank that a check I wrote to Lincoln High School on Nov 19 of 2008 was presented and cashed. Why did Lincoln High School hold on to my $20 check for two years before cashing it? I thought they were in need of funds. Although this may seem minor, if this is the way they mishandle small amounts of money, why do they think we can trust them with larger amounts? Steve Pounds, Lincoln
