Is it true that the school board is going to build a addition to Betsy that will be in the millions . We have less kids then from years before. If we have so much money give it back to the tax payers

Betsy Ross school has needed more space for at least 20 years. I'm glad they may finally get it.

Rumored to cost 3 million. They need an elevator and stuff at that school, but yeah there's not many kids that go there. Don't think it warrants such an undertaking

That's not what I hear from parents with kids in the school. Besides no art room and inadequate classroom space, B. Ross is lacking numerous other facilities that most other modern schools have. Friends of mine who send their kids their pay around $9,000 in RE taxes, another family roughly the same. They have a right to expect good facilities.

Not rumor. The idea was re-introduced a year ago. In September, the idea moved forward to getting plans and costs. In November, plans were presented. In December the school board approved the $3.73 million project. It's all been covered in the Review.

The will be a presentation @ Betsy on Tuesday, Jan 14th where questions will be taken.

Betsy is the only FP school that has not been expanded or significantly updated. The census at Betsy is low because they don't really have room to hold more students. When the addition is built, Betsy will house PS-2nd grades, just like Garfield does now.
