BOARD TO MAKE DECISIONS ON NEW CAMPUSES.Byline: CONNIE LLANOS llanos (yä`nōs), Spanish American term for prairies, specifically those of the Orinoco River basin of N South America, in Venezuela and E Colombia.
Juggling a multimillion-dollar budget deficit and a major building program, the Hart school board will debate tonight how to design and pay for construction projects.
In the past, the Hart High School Hart High School may refer to:
An alternate view would be to set a budget, then design the school within those constraints.
"We have built four schools in seven years and a lot of money has been spent on these improvements, so now we are faced with other needs," Superintendent Jaime Castellanos said. "We don't have the cash we used to have."

Unlike evolutionarily advanced fishes, it has a fine-grained hide, with very reduced scalation, a mostly cartilaginous skeleton, upturned tail fins, and a mouth set well back on the noted that some proposed elements of Golden Valley and West Ranch high schools West Ranch High School is a public high school in the community of Stevenson Ranch, Los Angeles County, California.

Consumer theory uses the concepts of a budget constraint and a preference ordering to analyze consumer choices. .
"I believe we need to maximize our available capital funds for future modernization and new construction, and in order to do so we need to make the best use of our money while retaining our education standards," Sturgeon said.
Sturgeon said the board is looking to stick to a more fiscally conservative model.
"Different economies cause different issues," he said.
Board member Gloria Mercado-Fortine said she plans to suggest a third alternative: a "design-construction model" that would put control of the design in the hands of the board and the district staff.
"Basically, architects have told us how to build and we have not had control," Mercado said.
She cited the $175 million high school, slated for completion in 2010, which includes horticulture horticulture [Lat. hortus=garden], science and art of gardening and of cultivating fruits, vegetables, flowers, and ornamental plants. Horticulture generally refers to small-scale gardening, and agriculture to the growing of field crops, usually on a large and equestrian centers.
"We don't need a lot of those things," Mercado said.
Mercado added that the use of alternative construction methods, such as modular buildings Modular buildings are sectional prefabricated buildings that are manufactured in a plant, and delivered to the customer in one or more complete modular sections. Modular buildings are considerably different from mobile homes. , will also need to be a part of the district's change in construction practices.
Castellanos added that the district, regardless of its construction philosophy, will be forced to delay some construction projects.
"We will have to focus on what is most important and put other things on hold."
