I attended the meeting & found it very interesting that Dr. Allison confirmed that 15% of the students that attend GCA are children of Gilbert Public school employees & that many of the other students are out of district students!! Yet they want to split students at Gilbert Jr to other surronding Jr. Highs. These kids had a hard enough transitioning to Jr. High & meeting new friends then to be split up & start over at a new school. Some of these kids are going to schools more than 5 miles away. When Dr. Allison was asked by a parent what is the district going to do for students that play sports & walk or ride their bike home from practice & now are miles away from home his response to the parents was that they would have to figure it out on their own. I didn't hear one good reason for splitting these innocent kids. My son said students were having melt downs at school when they heard the news about their school. I don't blame them. I hope the school board thinks about the impact this will have on our kids of Gilbert Jr. High.8 months ago
