To the editor:
I find it very ironic that the school board is "exploring" the idea of moving the CTC to the former Highland Park Elementary School building. I'm curious as to how you can consider this idea when just a couple years ago you made the decision to close that school, along with others. You uprooted hundreds of students and displaced and/or furloughed teachers and support staff because your team of architects, aka money makers, said it needed too much work and would not be feasible, which you seem to use that word a lot lately. I remember the home and school members came to the school board and offered to help pay for a new roof with the money they had in their treasury and you turned them down. Now all of a sudden you want to reopen it. You stated by moving the CTC there it would give an on-campus feel. By leaving that school open and keeping it an elementary school, and a very fine one at that, would have done the same thing.
So my question is if the school wasn't suitable when you did all the restructuring a couple years ago, how is it suitable now? Once again there will be more renovation costs and where is that money going to come from?
