(Atlantic) Washington Elementary school in Atlantic is getting a second mobile classroom installed on Monday. Superintendent Dr. Michael Amstein says the first step is putting the two sides together,
"The company that we lease it from actually comes and sets it up and puts the ramp for handicap access to it. From that point it is up to us to go ahead and hook the power up. If there is anything that is not working they will come back and take care of it."
Dr. Amstein says the need arouse from another large group of around 150 kindergarten students.
"We are expanding exponentially and unfortunately running out of classroom space. Last year we had a mobile unit brought up there so we could move music and our reading program along with our ESL program."
It is still to be determined what classrooms the new mobile unit will be used for.
"We are trying to keep all of our regular classrooms, homerooms, in the building but we are probably taking a look at moving some title one classrooms and possibly even a special ed classroom out to the new mobile classroom."
The first day of school for Atlantic Community School District students is scheduled for August 14th.
