Concerns Expressed on The Proposed Sherman School Closing


Parents on Madison's east side attended a meeting Tuesday to sound off on a plan that would close Sherman Middle School next year.

Parents and school staff packed a cafeteria Tuesday night to hear from the district and school board members about a plan that would consolidate Sherman with Blackhawk and O'Keefe middle schools.

The plan is estimated to save the district more than $750,000 in a budget that has a $10.5 million shortfall.

But parents said that the plan would not only uproot their children's lives but close a school that has come a long way.
