Is it true that West Junior High and the school district purchased a supposed air-filtration machine, to clean the air, with our tax money? Isn't this stuff unscientifically proven?
West Junior High School, 2700 Harvard Road, has a regular heating and air-conditioning system. Principal Myron Melton did not know of any special air-filtration machines at the school. Neither did Tom Bracciano, the district's operations and facility planning director.
If an air-filtration machine is being used at the school, it was not paid for with school district money, Bracciano said. Someone likely brought it from home or bought it with his or her own money, he said.
