In the wake of budget cuts that will leave two Springfield school buildings vacant, a school board member is expressing concern that not enough has been done to get ready for what comes next.
Scott McFarland says his big concerns are helping parents and students at Wanless and Pleasant Hill schools adjust to a new building. Those students will attend classes in the Feitshans (FIGHT’-shuns) building this fall.
But McFarland is also worried about the future of the vacant schools. He hopes the district will either occupy or sell the structures quickly, so that they don’t drag down property values.
