03 - 24 - 2011 Crowd protests school closing at Highland Park hearing
(LS) Unlike the hearing earlier in the week, there was a large number of residents protesting school closings at a hearing for Highland Park Elementary. Superintendent James Estep said, however, "I think it's time to move forward" when asked about the hearings. Public hearings must be scheduled at least 3 months prior to the final vote to close a building. Strodes Mills Middle School will be the next hearing next Monday at 6pm at the MCSD Administration Building in Lewistown.
