YONKERS, N.Y. -- The city pf Yonkers may have begun an awareness campaign to inform people about the $2 billion, 13-year bond plan it hopes will revitalize its schools, but perhaps it should have started with the Board of Education, according to lohud.com.

Citing a lack of knowledge about the plan, Facilities Committee Chairman Jim Cavanaugh said at a Feb. 2 school board meeting that several trustees were not fully informed of the plan's details, according to lohud.com.

By Tuesday, Feb. 9, Cavanaugh said trustees had been presented with the wider details of the plan, but not with a specific timeline for work at each district school, according to lohud.com.

A district spokeswoman said the Board of Education had been presented with the details of the plan in mid-January, but that Superintendent of Schools Edwin Quezada would provide another presentation at Wednesday's regularly scheduled board meeting, according to lohud.com.
