MOORE, Okla. – Moore Public School officials are making plans for students and teachers next year, following the May tornadoes.

They said residency policies will be waived for the 2013-2014 school year for any student the storms displaced.

Plaza Towers students will attend class on the Central Junior High School campus next year.

Briarwood students will have class at Emmaus Baptist Church on S. Western Ave.

Authorities said both schools will be rebuilt on their original sites.

“Fortunately when we come back there will be a different floor plan and a different footing,” Incoming Moore Superintendent Dr. Robert Romines said. “Those plans are with the architects and they are designing it better than we had before. Those kids deserve that.”

A fundraising drive to help teachers who lost all their classroom materials in the storm is underway as well.
