According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, there was a school board meeting last night, Richmond parents were angry over news that five pre-school programs could be consolidated into one regional school.
Here are the five elementary schools that could be affected: Fox, Munford, John B. Cary, Clark Springs and a pre-school development center in Church Hill would send all pre-schoolers to Maymont Elementary.
Some parents are upset because the regional program will separate brothers and sisters. The older ones will attend their designated elementary schools, while the pre-schoolers will be shipped to the regional center.
It's reported that consolidating classes will save Richmond Public Schools about $240,000.
Maymont Elementary is set to close in the fall. Students there are transferring to Clark Springs Elementary.
School leaders say, the regional center would give a second life to the otherwise abandoned school.
