Supporters of Stanton release counter-proposal




The Supporters of Stanton has released a counter-proposal to the School District's plan to close the E.M Stanton Elementary School. The 37-page document includes two proposals for a possible future for the school, photos, floor plans, and other supporting materials.

One proposal suggests housing an autism-support program at the school and the other proposal suggests expanding the school's catchment area in order to increase enrollment. The document includes a marketing plan and draft flyers for increasing visibility of the school as an education option in the neighborhood.

The Supporters of Stanton plan to present this final version of the counter-proposal at the School Reform Commission meeting tomorrow, February 16.

A final decision on which schools will be closed is expected this school year, but the exact timeline is not clear.
