Years after proposing the construction of a permanent addition to PS 143 in Corona to alleviate chronic school overcrowding, state Senator Jose Peralta and the School Construction Authority, unveiled on March 16th the design of the new building to more than 100 parents in the school’s auditorium. The new structure will replace the current decades-old classroom trailers located in the surrounding area. It will be constructed on land owned by the city Parks Department.

“Like I said many times, no child – no child should be educated in a trailer, and I hope once this project is completed, overcrowding at PS 143 will just be a chapter of its history,” said Senator Peralta, who two years ago stood on school grounds with parents demanding the construction of this permanent addition. “Almost 1,000 new seats to replace the mini-building and the rundown trailers will help our students learn in the environment they deserve. It will give them a better opportunity to succeed.”
