The question of lights at the football field at Menlo-Atherton High School returns to the board of the Sequoia Union High School District for a discussion on Wednesday, March 17.
The board meets at 5:30 p.m. in the district office at 480 James Ave. in Redwood City. The discussion on lights follows reports on career technical education and 2010 summer school.
If lights are coming to M-A for the upcoming fall football season, they will have to be temporary.
In a background document, the district notes that permanent lights must be approved by the Division of State Architect, which oversees construction at public schools. A backlog at the agency will push any consideration of lights to November or December at the earliest, the district said.
A related environmental report on the lights project should be complete in about two months, the backgrounder said.
The district plans to use bond money to pay for the lights.
