Moline School Leaders Decide On Boundary Changes

Posted: Updated: Apr 28, 2014 10:52 PM
     New boundaries for the 2015-2016 school year were up for a vote in the Moline school district Monday night. The board decided 5-1 to go with the second of two options presented which maximizes enrollment at three schools: the new Hamilton, Lincoln-Irving, as well as Roosevelt which is one of the district's only air conditioned buildings. Moving forward school leaders will fine tune how these changes will be implemented.

     "Our biggest concern is safety and making sure we offer other options for the students or try to meet up with them to get them back and forth to the buildings," said board President Connie Mc Elyea.

     Also in the scenario chosen some current Logan, Jane Addams and Butterworth students would be redistributed to Roosevelt, eliminating the overcrowding issue at Lincoln-Irving. These changes are needed because of the opening of the new hamilton school as well as the closing of Ericsson and Garfield schools.
