Atlantic School Board Approves Mobile Classroom


July 11th, 2012 by admin

The Atlantic School Board had their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night at Atlantic High School.  The board approved the signing of a lease for a mobile classroom that will be used at Washington Elementary this fall.  Atlantic Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Amstein says the school was so short on classroom space that it created the need for the mobile classroom.  It will be primarily used for music and art classes.

He says the lease will be for two years, which was the minimum the school board could get.  For the first year the lease would cost $22,500 because of set up charges, but for the second year the cost will only be the lease itself which is $10,500.

Once the lease for the mobile classroom is up in two years, Amstein says the board will take a look at district needs for the future and determine if there is still need for the mobile classroom at Washington Elementary.
