PACT could have stayed at Slater ,with Slater open and a neighborhood with a school, for the 400,000 they are proposing it would cost to keep this new school open(and the 2 million to build it)-this is ridiculous and if the plan goes through it is an insult to the North Whisman neighborhood that MVWSD would close a GREAT school and then build another one three years later? I am dumbfounded.

well if they had kept Slater open this wouldn't have been a problem. The Castro campus is crazy busy. Not only is there 660 students but there is also 150 preschool students, so the campus is more than full.

And that's the same Yick who plumped up her retirement payout on the way out. Apparently it was technically legal in the end, but morally wrong. No wonder the district and, even much worse, the state are in such a bind now.
