We Need Your Help TODAY!!
The Middletown Connecticut Board of Education, in attempts to reduce a budget shortfall, is discussing closing Macdonough Elementary School! The Ad Hoc School Closure Committee, formed by the Board of Education, was tasked to objectively discuss several options for elementary school closures, and their recommendations were as follows:
1. Don't close any school
2. IF you HAVE to close a school, close Macdonough
3. Factors to consider before making a decision (how this could affect residents of the North End and all of Middletown)
Macdonough Elementary is located in the North End of Middletown, Connecticut where some of the most economically disadvantaged residents of Middletown live. It is so central to the community that most of the parents walk or drive their children to school. This makes it easier for parents to be actively engaged in their children's learning. Macdonough is also home of the oldest school-based health center in Connecticut, and is the only one in Middletown.
If Macdonough Elementary School is closed, over 240 kids will be displaced to Spencer Elementary School, and many students at Spencer will be dispersed to other schools in the Middletown public school system.
This school closure will have an effect on all of our Middletown Public School Children and families!!
Please stand with us on the North End of Middletown as we fight to save our school!!!
