As I see a few other school districts getting ready to finalize there prosprospected school plans, Wilkes-Barre area does not seem to have anything finalized. This is contributing to the growing rumor mill. In the past month I have been sent e-mails claiming that Meyers High School will be closed for two years and Coughlin will be renovated after Meyers is complete, Meyers is to be torn down and rebuilt but only to house senior high students, a new mega high school is to be built, Coughlin will be closed after Meyers renovations and merged into GAR and Meyers , and the newest rumor is a addition is to be added to Kistler to accommodate 7th and eight grade students and and Meyers is to be partially torn down and rebuilt as Meyers High school leaving GAR and Coughlin opened as high schools. My point is there are way to many rumors and possibilities and something needs to be set soon. I am a very strong advocate of leaving all three schools opened and I am sure the majority of Wilkes-Barre feels the same way. My opinion is present some serious options and send them to a referendum. Let the people who are going to pay for these improvements decide.
