Critical Focus Schools Meeting Monday at Fairgrounds

Parents of students in the 19 "critical focus" schools in the Shelby County Schools system and those who live in the communities around those schools will hear more about the plan to improve the low-enrollment, low-student achievement schools Monday, March 27, at the Salvation Army Kroc Center, 800 East Parkway S. at 6 p.m. SCS superintendent Dorsey Hopson is proposing funding to turn around the schools that would otherwise be proposed for closing and consolidation with other schools. The school district will provide bus transportation to the meeting from four central locations Hamilton Middle School, Hawkins Mill Elementary, Knight Road Elementary and Westwood High.
