Ohio AFL-CIO chief: School district should

Tom Shade, School Board Superintendent
Dear Mr. Shade:
Our organization represents over 800,000 workers and families in the state of Ohio, including several thousand in Marion County. Additionally, I am the father of four (4) River Valley High School graduates and stepfather of two (2) others. We are very concerned about River Valley High School still functioning at a location with the problems we have heard about as follows:
We therefore believe it is important to move the River Valley studentsw immediately and not expose them to any more health risks. Citizens have already voted for relocation, everyone knows of the contamination and they should not be at this facility waiting for a new school to be built.
It is further my understanding that Tri-Rivers Vocational School is willing to provide space for temporary classrooms in the interim period of construction of new River Valley schools.
Thank you for your consideration.
Very truly yours,
William A. Burga
