Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on Portland's three smallest elementary schools, the Clifford, Baxter and Adams schools, which may be on the budget-cutting block. None of the three schools is fully accessible to people with physical handicaps. All have indoor air quality problems, and all have libraries that do not meet state standards. But even if all three are closed, school officials say the current plan to upgrade other schools could take up to 10 years and all of the students in the three schools would be gone by then. With a look at both sides of the issue, details about the state's school funding program, and cost figures on renovating the three schools. Also with the number of students and teachers, and the Maine Educational Assessment scores from 1999-2000 for all 11 of Portland's elementary schools.
