The kids are getting stipends to help staff the Arlington Hills Community Center’s Createch Studio, and teach others how to use Johnson High’s laser engraver and 3D printer. The equipment is on loan from the school for the summer. (Patrick Larkin/Review)

Thanks to some city funds, City Academy, the nation’s oldest charter school, looks poised to have a new roof over its head.
The school is located in a portion of the city-owned Wilder Recreation Center building, which is in need of some rather urgent upgrades. Last year, the sewer system backed up, releasing raw sewage into the basement of the building, near where classes are held. And it wasn’t the first time it had happened.
