Maya said this in mid-March in response to one of the Isthmus take-home test questions:
"Consolidating schools will decrease school administrative costs, something the citizens' budget has pointed out as one area to cut. The plan to move Affiliated Alternatives to the Sherman School Building will provide space for alternative programs in one location, decrease rent costs, and also save by decreasing school administrative costs.
As I have stated before, neighborhood schools are vital to the community. This is true especially for the elementary grades. If the district has no better alternative, consolidating an existing pairing into one K-5 school may be the best option. Closing a school should be our last option."
Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.
