Lake Shore School Board members don't want to throw good money after bad, so they're wondering if the district should spend a lot of money on improvements at Brant Elementary School if the school might be closed soon for declining enrollment.
The district also wants to make sure facilities are equitable and Brant pupils are offered amenities similar to the other elementary schools.
But Brant is a special school, parents and teachers say. Spend a fair amount, update the school, they say, but don't close it. What faculty and staff offer their pupils more than makes up for some shortfalls in the building, they say.
