This is a polarizing topic due to the lack of transparency. Many questions have been asked with no answers. What will be the cost of the school and all of the infrastructure? By infrastructure I mean roads, traffic lights, water lines, sewer, etc.? What will be the on going costs in addition to the operating expenses? Additional Police and Fire personnel? Additional Police and Fire equipment? I keep hearing that taxes will not be raised by the construction of a school but there has been no data presented that shows that. I don't live near Tract K or the trailor location. Why was the YMCA site abandoned? What is the current enrollment of 8th graders at the Marco Charter School? Has anyone surveyed this group to find out how many students would attend trailor classrooms next year?
Let's get all of the facts on the table so an intellegent decision can be made. Facts mean more than emotions.
Does Marco need a high school for a higher quality education or so kids don't need to travel to a high school? How would we know that a higher eduction would be achieved? Have new teachers with a great track record of teaching already committed to teach at the new school? If it is to prevent kids having to travel to school would the school only be for island residents?
