RE: Another Solution
by Marya Tyler

Modular buildings are expensive, and tend to sit there for years to come. I have worked in several locations where modular manufactured homes were installed as a stop-gap measure, and then left to exist as the energy-wasting, tinny, ugly school building for decades to come. It would be cheaper and more beneficial, I suspect, to put the money into completely renovating the old White Cliff school, which was built of solid materials made to last.

No doubt a good solution does exist, and I honor the school administration for actively seeking citizen input.

mp3Listen to this KRBD story... The Ketchikan School Board Wednesday night received six alternatives for housing White Cliff Elementary School's 270 students next year. As Deanna Garrison reports, the School Board also heard more discouraging news about the probability of the District remaining in the White Cliff building during the 2004-2004 school year.
