Basically, schools being closed have an abundance of space, and since the funding formula does not cover sites, but is rather based on students, this is negative space, meaning a loss of heat, etc. To help with that is to combine schools...perhaps not the best solution always, but how can you save money in this day and age to keep teachers, assistants, caretakers etc? The board is selling a lot of satellite offices and combining those into the new board offices, with a lot less space. This means that schools in different parts of the city will be used for meetings, working with teachers & students (as has been done for the last number of years). Instructional coaches, consultants, ELL teachers, etc. have been in schools consistently, day-to-day, for years. However, when meeting to set direction or to learn themselves, meeting in a school cannot occur. We are talking about a lot of people.
