Fate of Modular Classrooms Discussed

Huntington school board hears options for Woodhull.

The Huntington Board of Education Monday night discussed what to do about modular classrooms installed at Woodhull Intermediate School in 2010.

As previously reported in Patch, the four-classroom complex, put in place by the board to free up space in the main building, was funded by a transfer of capital line that year with a three-year lease cost of approximately $350,000, including a removal cost.

Among the options presented to the board by Schools Superintendent James W. Polansky were renewed use of the structure, at a cost of around $125,000; removal of the structures, at a cost of $52,000; or buy the structures, at a cost of approximately $325,000. The removal cost was built into the original estimate in 2010.

The board has up until 90 days before the end of the school year to make a decision.

Until they decide what to do with the Jack Abrams building, wouldn't it be prudent to hang on to the modulars? Will removal cost still be included if they keep the modulars for another year or so?
