It turns out that our community needs not just one new school but two, according to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Dakin.
The school population from year to year is rising by more than 250 creating the need for many more classrooms and for many more teachers. Dr. Dakin says the point has been reached where something tangible must be done in order to meet federal and state educational requirements and more importantly, simply to meet the requirements the city sets for educating its children in the public schools.
The city’s intransigence can no longer be tolerated, Dr. Dakin said.
The superintendent knows of what he speaks.
