Dear David:

There seems II be some concerns about Centre High, the young adult upgrading high school having II vacate its premises fast IV new headquarters & that the teachers/administrators wanted a more open building, so they could do passive checkups on the kids to ensure quality learning. I would think throwing open the doors of three or four community halls IV the summer & fall might do the trick.

The advantage here is that the kids would generally all be in one room. So you set up a few individual desks and some common areas IV table &/or group study. You can separate kids writing exams with curtains while other kids study. You can also have kids write exams on the stages at the front of each hall so that they have more peace and tranquility. Better II have kids have some space they can rely on thats nearby then shunt them temporarily into regular schools or homeschooling situations where they might feel uncomfortable.
