WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The topics of crowded schools and five modular classroom buildings already scheduled for removal combined Tuesday as Waynesboro Area School Board members debated how to plan for the future.
Modular units at Waynesboro Area Senior High School must be removed by June 30 due to requirements associated with renovating the school.
Superintendent James Robertson said he received estimates that the district could get $81,000 to $90,000 if it sold the units, which range in size from 12-foot by 6-foot to 24-foot by 26-foot and larger. They can be used for up to six classrooms.
"We do have some crowding issues at some of our elementary schools," he said.
Every classroom in the district's elementary schools is used, except one room at Mowrey Elementary School, Robertson said. Some closets were converted into space for small-group instruction, he said.
