This is a clarification to my letter printed on April 4.
The current Crestwood High School and Middle School continue to require an increasing amount of permanent improvement funds, due to aging and use, to keep them functioning. Although structurally sound and safe to operate, these buildings are no longer suitable in their structural configuration to educate our students for the modern work force.
Modern jobs require employees that are skilled in collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem solving. These skills are learned in functional and flexible classroom settings that enable our schools to educate our students so that they can thrive in today's world. Now is the time.
