Board of Trustees member Chris Collina, also a pastor of a church renting the old Charlestowne Academy building from the district, has made no secret of his independence from Superintendent McGinley and her minions. Now the School Board has voted for Collins's church to cough up another $600 plus for use of the building over the hours specified.
No one seems to ask the obvious questions, so I will.
Why is this vacant building wasting away in the first place? Why hasn't the district diligently searched for some organization to rent the facilities? In other words, why isn't the district concerned about using its capital resources to pruduce income? It's not like the school's sitting vacant doesn't cost money; it does.
This case in point is yet another example of how the district runs its finances poorly. We can only guess at the problems that we can't see sitting so prominently by the side of the road.
