Copying from above:
"This is the second modular school building fire in the last year we have had here in Menlo Park," Schapelhouman said. The building dates from 1986 and was meant to be temporary and thus was exempt from certain fire code regulations, he said.
Just wondering - Modular school buildings are commonly used. Anyone aware of other exemptions (compromises?) in addition to fire code regulations? health, maybe? any other?

Partners in Education (PiE) of Palo Alto raised $4.4 million in 2011-12, surpassing its goal. This year, we will give our donation to Beechwood School instead. I encourage other families in the PAUSD to consider doing so as well. Yes, I've heard all of the arguments for why giving to PiE is important but in the grand scheme of things, really, who needs the money more?
