School starts in two weeks, and new modular units should be ready in time for use at Jefferson Primary and Chamberlin Hill Intermediate schools. The Courier reports the school board talked about the ongoing installation process during their Monday meeting. The project has faced some delays but should be finished on time.
Director of Operations Dennis McPheron told the board it took longer than expected to get electricity hooked up to the units. Furniture has been bought for the modular classrooms as well. McPheron admitted it would be a “tight” timetable for teachers to get in and get the rooms ready for students.
The modulars were bought to help reduce class sizes. Superintendent Ed Kurt said kindergarten classes were averaging 25 children. With the modulars in place that will drop to around 20.
