Build a new Middle/High school for Northampton County!

Northampton high school was build in 1954 with an addition in 1978. The buildings are now suffering great structural damage that threaten the safety of our children. We, citizens of Northampton County, are asking the Board of Supervisors to agree to the building of a new school.
In addition to great safety issues, a new building is necessary to answer:
- the lack of a proper middle school for Northampton students since the "condemnation" of the old middle school facility.
-the lack of a shelter for Northampton County. The high school is not structurally fit to be used as a shelter, should it then be fit for your children?
- the extreme energy inefficiency of the current building. Elementary schools have a 5 to 7K energy bill while the current high school's energy bill ranges from 15 to 22K.
- economic development of the county. A better school is necessary to attract entrepreneurs, employers and employees alike. In addition to the aesthetic appeal of a new school, "US research findings link school facility upgrade to a wide array of impacts, including student ATTENDANCE and ACADEMIC GAINS, teacher job satisfaction and RETENTION, INCREASED RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY VALUES, EQUITY across communities, and reduced negative health issues arising from poorly maintained buildings".
