Try our Famous Bar-B-Q By SARAH DUKE Staff writer MARION — The Marion School Board voted Wednesday to allow architects to redraw plans for a proposed new elementary school building increasing the size of classrooms by two square feet. Tom DeKunder’s request to increase the proposed classroom size caused considerable discussion about the need for more room at the school. He said the increase in room size was needed for storage space. DeKunder told the board that by next September the elementary school definitely will need three new classrooms and possibly more. He also said that the elementary enrollment could double within five years causing a serious overcrowding problem. “It doesn’t matter to me or the teachers whether you want portable buildings, permanent or whatever,” DeKunder said. “The learning process will occur regardless of the type of building.” The board decided recently to hire an architect to draw up plans for a new elementary building. The board has not made definite plans to build the building but is considering the cost. They are also considering purchasing portable buildings to meet the school’s immediate needs. The proposed new building being considered would have eight classrooms Board member Sally Boeck said that while she is not opposed to building a new elementary building, she does not feel that the board should rush into the decision. “I’m just saying I don’t want to feel like we have to build a whole new building right now,” she said. Boeck suggested that the board ap- pr jve building part of an elementary wing and complete it when funds become available. DeKunder said that while a complete need building is not needed im-mediatedly, he thinks the board eventually will have to build new facilities. He said enrollment has Increased considerably during the past few years and will continue to increase. A new Marion intermediate school building is now under construction and is expected to be completed by March.
