Fayette County parents oppose school changes

A proposal to modify the boundaries of the Huddleston Elementary School district drew strong opposition from parents who attended Monday’s meeting of the Fayette County Board of Education.

Ten Peachtree City residents, mostly from the Sandown neighborhood off McIntosh Trail, voiced their concerns to the board, which is considering a plan to send more students to Oak Grove Elementary next year and then to Rising Starr Middle and Starr’s Mill High because of crowding at J. C. Booth Middle and McIntosh High.

Parents said the changes would disrupt families, diminish their home values and not solve the county-wide population issue. Fayette is examining other factors and options before making a final decision.
