Full House Expected at North High Closing Hearing
A large – and emotional – crowd is expected today as the superintendant of Minneapolis schools outlines a plan to close North High. Superintendant Bernadiea Johnson will appear before the school board today with a plan to close North High School in three years. District spokesperson Stan Allen, says the reason is clear: a dramatic decline in enrollment as students attend other schools. Allen says there’s been only limited response so far from the community. They do expect a large crowd at today’s board meeting, as well as protesters outside, prior to the session. Final action will be taken in November.
