Re: "Cramped Puyallup elementary school" (TNT, 2-4).
Doesn't the Puyallup School Board or the public remember they closed a couple of grade schools within recent memory? Even if the schools aren't in the areas of growth, surely there is a way to rearrange attendance areas so those buildings can be utilized again.
The Puyallup School District is short-sighted and can't project its needs for the future. Besides closing older schools, new schools that have been built immediately bring in portable classrooms, and existing schools that are really not all that old have plans for demolition and replacement.
Before asking taxpayers to fund new schools, I suggest the school district better utilize its current facilities, better predict growth, and build schools that will still be standing and functional way into the future.
