Menlo Park getting shafted by M-A
Original post made by peter carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on Oct 4, 2010
"After contributing $2.6 million to construction of the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center in exchange for the right to use it 55 days annually, Menlo Park booked the state-of-the-art facility only 16 days since its grand opening a year ago.
Under the agreement between Menlo Park and the Sequoia district, schools get first shot at using the center. Menlo Park has to go through Menlo-Atherton when it wants to book a day.
Sometimes it takes six to eight weeks to get a response from the high school,"
Why am I not surprised?
