A move by the Altoona Area School District to draw new boundary lines for seven of its elementary schools drew a large crowd of concerned parents to Monday’s meeting.
The parents say they are concerned about the sudden move – which was prompted after the district voted earlier this year to close to elementary school buildings. Several people addressed the board, questioning transportation and safety issues, busy intersections and the stress it’s causing their children.
Administrators say approximately 250 students are affected by the changes. Superintendent Dr. Tom Otto says he understands why the parents are upset.
School Board president Ryan Beers says he’s also empathetic – but the issue was compounded when boundaries weren’t changed when past schools closed. Dr. Otto says the parents of every elementary school student will be notified of their new building assignments beginning next week.
