Won't there be a lot of schools with a lot less students enrolled in them. What will be done with those schools where enrollment drops significantly? Any plans to close those? Especially Bassette or Armstrong who lie extremely close to the new site of the Hunter Andrews site.

I think that those who have childrent at Spratley should be able to go to the new school No matter where they live.

Sorry but Spratley has NOT held up to MR.Wrights standards and dont see it improving.

How will sending the Spratley students to the new school change them? Just curious?
I was interested to see that the fundamental schools will not provide transportation as they have in the past..... I would guess that many students will leave these schools and attend the new schools as their parents will not want to or may not be able to provide transportation any longer.

Amen! Mr. Wright left quickly and never followed through because he was too concerned about his ego and not the kids and staff. Every school meeting was always late and the administrator shook my hand like I was in the hood. I question a system who hires a principal with only two years of classroom experience?

In most cases it won't change them, but there is hope. The best thing the school system can do is start getting parents more involved in their child's education.
