About 650 residents have signed a petition against a proposed Consolidated High School District 230 attendance plan that would direct students in two areas to have one high school option, as of Sunday night.

The plan includes placing students from Community Consolidated District 146’s Central Middle School strictly at Victor J. Andrew High School upon entering high school, and also dissolving an option zone around Carl Sandburg High School, route: {:controller=>"listings", :action=>"show", :id=>"carl-sandburg-high-school"} --> where students would be directed only to

I totally agree with you! Who ever suggested this is has a medical condition of not understanding us. We search for the best school for our children when we invest in our homes, just to have a moran come and destroy everything!

Sorry Donna, just reading these as I signed up on an email I don't use too often. No Stagg was NOT better equipped for SN students. It was over crowded with students and equipment and a real mess. We tried when our students were in 6th grade to have them go to their home school with the students they went to grammar school with but we lost that fight. Andrew, when the program was finally there, was suppose to have the same curriculum and activities but they never did but that was the districts fault for not allowing it. As far as the 146 students, how they ever went to Sandburg in the first place is beyond me.....
