Carol Carstensen to speak Thursday night, Nov. 10

From Schenk-Atwood-Starkweather-Yahara Neighborhood Association council:

Long time Madison Board of Education member Carol Carstensen has agreed to be at our neighborhood association meeting next Thursday November 10 - 7:15 PM - at the Atwood Community Center - to talk about the future of east side schools, particularly Lowell and Lapham-Marquette elementary schools.

A school board task force is looking into underenrollment at some east side elementary schools - crowding at others - and what to do about it. Adjusting school attendance area boundary lines and / or closing schools are some of the options on the table. Emerson, Lapham and Lowell elementary schools -- all under capacity -- are said to be at risk if closings are considered.

In January the east side task force will recommend up to 3 options to the school board's Long-Range Planning Committee.
