2 Caddo Schools Removed from Chopping Block

LAMAR-GOREEJust a day after announcing a plan to close 3 Caddo Schools, the superintendent has a change of heart.

Dr. Lamar Goree has issued a statement saying his plan will no longer recommend closing Atkins Elementary and Queensborough Elementary. Dr. Goree released this statement:

While the proposal to consolidate Atkins and Queensborough elementary schools into higher-performing campuses was grounded in every effort to provide additional academic opportunities to students, I believe that before any decision like this can be made that as a community we have much more work to be done to come together. Caddo Schools must work to provide the highest quality education to every child while remaining cognizant of fiscal and legislative restraints. Our district – staff, students, parents, and community members – must come together as one unified voice and directly address what we need in order to have the best quality of life for our residents. The time is now and there is no better cause to stand behind than our children.

His proposal still calls for closing Lakeshore Middle School and moving those students to what will become Fairpark Middle School.
