• Money, health factors in possible M.E. Freeman move
By Brian Bowden

“Everything is going wrong and we're sinking money into a space that is less than what our kids deserve,” said Superintendent of Schools Carol Jean Carey at the January Warren County Board of Education meeting.
"When the teachers come back every year and the kids come back, within three-to-four weeks, we have the allergies coming up as well."
The M.E. Freeman Elementary School building, which was built around 1956 and houses pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, seems to be on its last leg. "We need to go on and move because the building that we're in is headed to be a sick building. We have a lot of concerns there," said Carey. "It's been a real headache these last three or four years."
Carey is proposing a plan to all five board members at the February meeting, that would potentially move the elementary students in first through fifth to the middle-high school by August of this year. "We need to get our elementary kids in a good place that we're not just dumping more money into that we can't recoup," said Carey. "We are wasting our money there [at M.E. Freeman]." The remaining pre-K, 3-K and kindergarten students would be housed at the career academy for the time being.
