Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa C.R. Schools To Go offer Parents for Damage Costs The recent wave of school vandalism is being met wifh an effort to collect damages from parents of youngsters caught maliciously damaging school property and to take legal ac- tion against parents who won't pay. The Cedar Rapids Community school board Monday afternoon granted Secretary Otto Wieders- bcrg the authority to refer cases to the school district attorney in which parents refuse to pay for damages caused by their minor children. Wicdcrsbcrg said Iowa law makes parents liable for dam- ages up to for actual damages to person or property caused by unlawful acts of their minor children for any one act, and up to for two or more acts. Board Downs Vote Survey A recommendation lo survey a cross section of voters to de- termine why they voted yes or no in the recent million school bond referendum was de- feated by the Cedar Rapids Community school board Mon- day afternoon. The vote on the action, recom- mended by President Ron Moore, was defeated by a 3-4 vote, with Moore, Mary Ann Kucera and Curran Rosser vot- ing affirmatively. "Objective Data" Moore said the survey would provide some "objective data'.' to base a decision on whether or not to attempt a third referen- dum on the bond issue for re- modeling four junior high schools. Norman Lipsky told Moore he didn't "like seeing this in the president's report without chance to discuss it." He said the board needed "to look at the whole proposition' before deciding whether a third [attempt will be made to pass the bond issue. Not Needed said, since "the reasons are very clear why they voted yes r no. "I could sit down and in five minutes give you every reason why voters voted .the way they did." He suggested the board de- vote a work session in January to discussing the junior high remodeling. The ?8.9 million bond issue to pay for remodeling Franklin, Wilson, McKinley and Rooseveli junior high schools won approv al from 56 percent of the voters in laF-'c week's election, falling short of the 60 percent approva needed for bond issues. A similar proposal was ap- proved by 58 .percent of the voters last spring. Two Meetings In other matters, the board set two meetings with citizens on Jan. 21 and Feb. 19 at p.m. in the Educational Service Center, 346 Second avenue SW board room.

"We lavo been pursuing cases where hildren were apprehended. We may be having difficulty in the uture and we're asking to refer uses to the school district at- orney if parents fail to cooper- ate." Four Cedar Rapids Communi- y schools have' been damaged )y vandals recently. Truman >chool sustained an estimated damage when reslroom ixtures were broken' and paint vas poured over machinery. Adams and Coolidge schools each sustained minor damages ast week. Franklin junior high school also was damaged re- cently. A youngster has been arrested for the Franklin damage, Wie- dersberg said. Parents will be held liable for school vandalism, he said, even n cases where no arrests are made. That is the practice now in cases ,where windows are bro- ken maliciously, for example, if studenls are caught doing it.
