They can economically and flexibly house River Valley Middle and High School’s 800 students in fourteen units.

It takes only two to three months to assemble and deliver these units to the site. In an emergency, it can be done it three to four weeks.  The details are important, and we all, including Ohio Citizen Action, look to the school district for leadership in working them out with the parents, administrators and teachers.
