Folsom Cordova (Calif.) Unified School District leaders were elated and relieved when a small group of voters approved a record $750 million bond in March--enabling the district to plan for growth over the next quarter-century.

A slumping housing market, skyrocketing school construction costs and changes in land-use plans that could be years down the road pose challenges to even the best-laid plans.
