    Q: What programs would have to be cut during the off-campus move?
    Q: What about ALL sports programs – where would they go? fields? tracks?
    Q: If teachers/programs cut, how would that affect college applications?
    Q: How would the off-campus housing impact graduation? Since the AMMS building is not “up to speed” with technology, classrooms, etc. the students can’t receive proper classes?
    Q: AMMS was OVERCROWDED with just grades 6-8… now you want grades 9-12 in there…How?
    Q: Why can’t AMMS just be renovated and maintained properly instead of just dumping money into it for a year? THere are many structural flaws with that building (ie: ceilings collapsing, roof LEAKS and students’ lockers displaced due to flooding indoors, cracked walls, plywood seperating classrooms )…. Where has tax money gone??

    What are the plans for the Memorial School building? It make a big difference if the plan is to sell it and put on tax rolls or have it be a municpal property costing tax payers even more than the savings of the renovation.
