    Save Carmel Elementary

          Keep Carmel Elementary Open Carmel Elementary School is the neighborhood school for the Arts and Design District. Niche.com rated Carmel Elementary School the 5th best public elementary school in the state of Indiana for 2018. But now the Carmel Clay School Board wants to close it, permanently. Children from the neighborhood, despite all that is being done to make the area more walk-able and family friendly, will not have the option of a school to walk to. We will be left with no centralized elementary school. This will affect: Parents, Business owners, all property owners in downtown Carmel and just the overall feel of our neighborhoods and the Arts and Design District. Carmel Elementary is currently at 91% enrollment There is no answer as to where the neighborhood children will go should the school close. The school board wants to build a new school, west of Meridian, leaving no elementary schools in the central part of the city. What can you do to help save Carmel Elementary?1.
