When a timeline was developed for the Measure D bond projects in 2015 , the Board responded to parent requests that work be done at Kent first, then Bacich, so that students would not be living in a construction zone for multiple years.

That plan seemed to have worked when Bacich opened on September 3rd. Then, on September 4th, at the back-to-school coffee at Kent, a dust cloud rolled over the sprint track and numerous parents leapt into action contacting the College of Marin about the dangers posed by their building project just to the south of Kent.

The College reported to the School Board on Tuesday about the measures they are now taking to ameliorate the effects of their construction, which appear to be making things somewhat better. Despite the College’s assertions, the District attempted throughout the summer to get their attention about the same concerns raised by the parent groups.

Thankfully, they finally listened to someone.
