MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Just as St. Paul Public Schools get ready to meet with upset parents about changes, the district has saved a school from closing.

Superintendent Valeria Silva said Four Seasons Elementary School will remain open, but will no longer be a year-round magnet school.

It was one of the programs that faced being shut down under the “Strong Schools, Strong Communities” strategic plan.

Other plans call for an end to busing for many students.

The school board is holding its first of six community information sessions Thursday at 7 p.m. at Ames/Sheridan School.

    Another case of some upset parents costing the whole district _read taxpayers_a mess of money just to pacify them? Or did it truly make sense to keep open?
    Questions that need to be answered or have the heads roll St. Paul. Parents do not run schools – the mess we have is mainly because of them and their “wants” and “needs”. HELLO

    Oh shut up Maria… Im sure your kids wont be affected by any of this, thats why you have so much to say.

    Parents should have a say in what schools stay open, what the State does with education dollars, as we are all paying to keep the schools alive with our HIGH PROPERTY TAXES!
