Abstract

"City" piece on options be considered by the Portland School Committee for the redistribution of students who formerly attended the Jack Elementary School in the city's Munjoy Hill neighborhood. Those students are currently attending classes in a rented downtown office building. The school board has decided to redistribute the students among Adams, Reiche and Clifford schools next year. Some parents feel the board ignored the option of negotiating a cheaper rent for the present site, which would allow the students to remain together. But Mary Jo O'Connor, superintendent of Portland's schools, said redistribution is the best path because the present site is inadequate as a school facility, both for students and teachers.
