Public forum held on redistricting for Holly Shelter Middle School

Video

Body

New Hanover County will have a new middle school next year. The opening of Holly Shelter Middle School requires moving students around. Three public forums are scheduled to discuss the issues involved.

The first was Tuesday night at Myrtle Grove Middle School. More than 150 people attended. The majority of speakers shared a common goal. They want the school board to choose a neighborhood school option.

“We have the right to select which schools our children should attend. We make that right when we determine where we live,” said Valerie Baars. “Now you tell us that our choice of school is suddenly going to change. That’s wrong and not fair – toying with our emotions year after year by threatening to uproot our children by moving them to another school.”

Many Ogden residents attended the meeting. One of the current options has Ogden students being bussed to the new Holly Shelter school.

The next forum is Monday, October 19th at Noble Middle School.
