Parents, teachers and community members are invited to tonight's town hall meeting to deal with overcrowding in the classroom. Oklahoma City Public Schools has added two more meetings to discuss proposed school boundary changes.
The district says because of an increase in enrollment, many South Oklahoma City middle and high schools are overcrowded and do not have adequate space for students or staff. Part of the proposed plan will move attendance boundaries and send Shidler and Wheeler elementary area students to Douglass Mid-High school. And Pierce, Rockwood and Westwood elementary area students to Taft Middle School and Northwest Classen High School. All of the proposed changes would go into effect for next year's school year.
The district says they want to give families on the north side of town a chance to learn about the proposed changes.
Tonight's meeting starts at six in the Hudson Performance Hall at Northwest Classen High. The district's second meeting will be Thursday at Douglas Mid-High.
