Seating was limited tonight as over a hundred people packed into a board room as the Christian County Board of Education discussed the fate of three schools.
The discussion first began with District Chief Operations Officer, Kathy Hancock saying Lacy and Belmont Elementary Schools had four more years of life before the state would mandate that those two schools to be closed and North Drive Middle School possibly being reconfigured.
School board member Linda Keller wanted to reassure concerned parents that school officials are not in the business of shutting down schools.
Christian County Public School Superintendent Mary Ann Gemmil says she wanted a status report on the three schools since the building of Lacy Elementary School is considerably older than other schools in the district, Belmont Elementary School is landlocked and parking space has become an issue and whether or not North Drive Middle School should be reconfigured.
Alisia Jenkins, whose children attend Lacy says she is concerned and expressed her thoughts on the issue.
