As a parent of children in the public school system, it is anything but a dead building for me, and if it is renovated to accommodate the board's consolidated services, some of which include an increased commitment to community engagement and continuing education, it will only be more relevant to the life of this city. Throw in LRT...

I agree that the unfortunate setback popular at the time of construction has the functional effect of distancing the building from the street, which would be a greater loss in other cities where streets are vital public spaces, however I believe that could be mitigated by both an intelligent redesign of the plaza, and by the conversion of Main St to the kind of public space it should be - the city and the board meeting halfway as it were.
