We should look at school size. Are we trying to build bigger schools. Should we not have smaller schools Bigger is not always better. With smaller schools closer to where the children live. Smaller schools would be easier to control and the teachers might be able to know the children and. Teachers should get to know there students,and find out what they are thinking and going through. With all the working moms today do they really have time to know what there children are exposed to especially when they become teens. a Teacher spends more awake time with our children and more aware of what they are going through In many cases it is easier for teens to talk to someone out of the home.

dolittle - most high school students have a teacher once a day for one class. That is 45 minutes. Any good parent spends more than 45 minutes with their child a day.

Frankly, if we would have passed the levy for new schools some of these security issues would not be issues, money would have been wiser spent and our taxes would be cheaper than they are now especially with those pushing for a school safety levy. I would still like to see two new elementary schools, one middle and one high school built. Our schools lack safety, efficiency and technology.

The only ones wanting new schools are the ones that are working for the schools and the ones that are not paying for them.

Thanks you for your input. I am glad they are working to make our school a safer place for the students. I liked the three floor plan of the middle school. where I spent my 4 years. we didn't get a chance to be obese. With all those steps we kept our shape. There has to be an architect that could design a school that could provide a safer environment. Do we need all classes on the first floor? I think having so many kids in one space is not the answer We need smaller schools. and give our teen age students more time, & personal attn.

dolittle: um...the HS is FOUR floors (not everything is on one floor). Yes, I agree there are architects who can design "safe" schools...but the people decided not to approve building new schools. Now we are faced with having to secure the ones we have as best as possible.
