Would it not be beneficial to consolidated and stream line bussing, maximize faculty and staff, and cut additional fixed expenses that maintaining three separate schools come with. The study shows that Ireland is do for major upgrades anyways. Logistics should not be a problem as the middle school is already blended.
Thank you for the post. The one point the school needs to address is if they want to build a new building, will they make a statement about having buyers for the current three buildings before putting the referendum up.
