At yesterday’s regularly scheduled board meeting, the Board of Trustees decided not to proceed with repairs to the McKay Avenue building at this time. The decision means that repairs to infrastructure will be considered as part of the District’s overall needs.
“It is clear that the McKay Avenue building is in need of repairs, but that is true of many district schools,” says Board Chair Sarah Hoffman. “Our priority is keeping educational dollars in the classroom We want to ensure that our students learn in the highest quality environments possible. Sometimes that means making difficult decisions about buildings that do not accommodate and educate students on a daily basis.”
The McKay Avenue building is the home of the District’s Archives and Museum and is used as an educational resource for district staff and the public at large.
