Red Tide Tonight: Kingsbury Middle School parents demand explanation for consolidation
Kingsbury Middle School parents will stump to get Douglas County School Board trustees to reconsider their decision to close the school in June 2008.
A forum to discuss the issue is set for 6:30 p.m. tonight at George Whittell High School. Three school board members and Superintendent Carol Lark are expected to attend.
Parent Greg Felton is spearheading the re-evaluation of the Douglas County School District trustees’ decision to close Kingsbury Middle School and keep Zephyr Cove Elementary open. He said the Parents’ Club and Booster Club surveyed parents and found 95 percent of the people wanted the consolidation to take place at the middle school instead.
To show their unity, parents and students are encouraged to wear red.
