Why does the District need a second gymnasium?
Having just one gymnasium creates two challenges for our students and the community. First, there is not enough space during the day for physical education classes. Three to four classrooms share a space. Second, having a gym has a huge impact on sports and activity offerings. Currently, teams are required to train at 5:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day. In addition, if there is a home basketball or volleyball game, the team of the opposite sex is limited to training only 45 minutes before the start of the first game or must start training. practice at 8:30 p.m. after the end of the match. Finally, we have a student and community interest in offering new intramural activities and sports for students or community members, but Central does not have the space to promote these activities.
