Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa C.R. Schools To Go after Parents for Damage Costs TI* 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 action 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. Wiedersberg said Iowa law makes parents liable for damages up to $1,000 for actual damages to person or property caused by unlawful acts of their minor children for any one act, and up to $2,000 for two or more acts. Board Downs Vote Survey A recommendation to purvey a cross section of voters to determine why they voted yes or no in the recent $8.9 million school bond referendum was defeated by the Cedar Rapids Community school board Monday afternoon. The vote on the action, recom-mended by President Ron Moore, was defeated by a 3-4 vote, with Moore, Mary Ann Kueera and Curran Rosser voting affirmatively. “Objective Data” Moore said the survey would provide some “objective data” to base a decision on whether or not to attempt a third referendum on the bond issue for remodeling four junior high schools. Norman Lipsky told Moore he didn’t “like seeing this in the president’s report without a 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 A survey is not needed to determine voter attitudes, Lipsky board member. said, since “the reasons are very clear why they voted yes or no. “I could sit down and in five minutes give you every reason why voters voted the way they did.” He suggested the board devote 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 Roosevelt junior high schools won approval from 56 percent of the voters in last week’s election, falling short of the 60 percent approval needed for bond issues. A similar proposal was approved 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 7:30 p.m. in the Educational Services Center, 346 Second avenue SW, board room. The meeting is open to the public. Any citizens interested in meeting informally with the board are invited. Those interested may contact a school “It has been our policy to pursue parental liability in the past,” said Wiedersberg. “We have been pursuing cases where children were apprehended. We may be having difficulty in the future and we’re asking to refer cases to the school district attorney if parents fail to cooperate.” Four Cedar Rapids Community schools have' been damaged by vandals recently. Truman school sustained an estimated $2,500 damage when restroom fixtures were broken and paint was poured over machinery. Adams and Coolidge schools each sustained minor damages last week. Franklin junior high school also was damaged recently. A youngster has been arrested for the Franklin damage, Wiedersberg said. . Parents will be held liable for school vandalism, he said, even in cases where no arrests are made. That Is tho practice now in cases where windows are broken maliciously, for example, if students are caught doing it.
