Emotions were running high and even standing room was at a premium Tuesday night, as the Board of Education heard a report on elementary school enrollment. The board discussed two proposals that would move Frenchtown students to Middlebrook Elementary.
The meeting started with a public comment portion, where several parents who had reviewed the presentation voiced concerns. Many said the proposals were targeting certain neighborhoods, especially The Eaves apartment complex, formerly known as the Avalon Gates. Others worried the plans would potentially shift overcrowding issues from Frenchtown to Middlebrook. While Middlebrook parents said they would welcome new families, they worried students and staff would not get resources needed.
