Parents Raise Boundary Adjustment Concerns at RPS Board Meeting

February 20, 2018 11:28 PM

(ABC 6 News) -- Rochester parents had a chance to weigh-in on a proposed change to where their kids go to school.

On Tuesday night, the Rochester School Board discussed boundary changes for the 2018-2019 school year that would affect nearly 250 families in the district.


School officials say there is overcrowding in four elementary schools and one middle school.

During the public comment period, some parents argued the changes would impact their child's development.

"The proposition that she would be moved to Sunset Terrace would move her for two to three years. With the new school proposed, she would have to be moved again. We will not be moving physical addresses, and yet our daughter would have to go to three different elementary schools," one mother said.

The board did not take action on the issue and will discuss it at the next meeting March 6.
