Evan Smith: Cost not a factor in School-Museum settlement

Commentary Follow-up / Evan Smith

Although the Shoreline School District will pay $1.5 million to move the Ronald School building under its settlement with the Shoreline Historical Museum, the arrangement won’t cost the District any extra money.

That $1.5 million is no more than the School District would have had to spend to retrofit the 98-year-old building under its earlier plan to incorporate the building into a rebuilt Shorewood High School.

Museum board member Bob Phelps told me Wednesday that standards for school construction are more stringent and expensive than are standards for other public buildings.
