Morgan school board faces easy decision
Sparkman School principal Ronnie Moore and bus driver Ann Miller's plea for protective awnings at the loading zone hopefully reshapes some Morgan County School priorities.
Their contention is that putting construction of bleachers at Priceville High School Stadium ahead of adequate loading- zone shelters for disabled children at Sparkman makes no sense.
Eleven buses deliver about 60 physically handicapped and special-education students to Sparkman. The school has inadequate shelter for getting these students on and off buses and keeping them dry. Some are fragile and can't withstand getting wet.
The administration proposed allocating $7,500 to build a third of the shelter needed at the transfer school and $100,000 for the Priceville bleachers.
The school board meets Thursday, and it's a good bet members correct the Sparkman problem.
