Board Approves Additional $5 Million to Repair School

WICHITA, Kan.  -  The Wichita School Board has approved an additional $5 million to make repairs to College Hill Elementary.

The school building suffered extensive damage in a fire last August, just before the start of the new school year. The board had already approved $750,000 toward repairs. The additional $5 million that was requested included $4.75 million from the district's insurance reserve fund and $250,000 from the capital outlay fund.

District documents show the damage to the school is much more extensive than previously thought. The board approved the funding during their regularly scheduled Monday night meeting.

Doesn't make economic since?
Why spend more money, $5,000,000.00, to repair a school, College Hill Elementry, that has been closed for a year? How many bus rides would $5,000,000.00 pay for? The Bryant Elementary school is open and doing fine!!! It's a great school in a great neighborhood that doesn't need moooooooore money thrown at it. What has happened to common sense? Maybe the school board needs to attend Bryant Elementary for retraining in common sense! That's my two cents, but who am I. Just another tax payer who , pays and pays and pays and pays!! How about you? One Wichita Tax Payer
