School officials said arrangements made after the August flood - to send displaced students to host campuses and split the school day, in the case of two high schools - is causing transportation and logistical strains.

Superintendent David Alexander said at Tuesday's school board meeting the temporary buildings, would fill in the gap" while flood-damaged schools are repaired.

Alexander said the target date to have temporary buildings installed and ready, so that students can once again be on their own campus.
