Modular classrooms

The Avonworth School Board approved, at its regular meeting on April 13, a contract with Williams-Scotsman for two modular classrooms.

The trailers will allow the district to handle an overflow of students at the elementary school while officials decide how best to expand the school permanently.

The district will pay $165,000 over the term of a four-year lease, then pay $1 to purchase the classrooms, according to director of fiscal management Brad Waters.

The board approved the modular classrooms by a vote of 8-1, with board member Jeff Schmid voting against the motion saying that he did not want to increase the cost burden to the taxpayers of the district.
