Equipment at JFK falling apart
It's halfway into the school year and the interim JFK High School campus still needs some help. Assistant Principal Bobby Roberto says school officials have voiced concerns with CoreTech International on collateral equipment issues. Apparently book shelves, filing cabinets and student desks are falling apart.
"We're working with CoreTech," Roberto said. "We've given them our concerns, they've given us recommendations and we've counteracted their recommendations because we still see it as poor quality. So we do need their help because of all the money that was spent to bring these items here."
Roberto says they're also concerned about the poor acoustics in the school cafeteria. As a result, they haven't been able to schedule faculty and school meetings there. In addition, she says CoreTech has yet to install a canopy connecting to the cafeteria so students are getting wet on rainy days.
