Strait Region Parents form Save Community Schools to Battle Possible Closures - The Chronicle Herald

"Advocates for three schools in the Strait region earmarked for possible closure have banded together to push back.


Denise Delorey, who lives across the street from the Heatherton elementary school and has two children going there, said concerned parents hope a co-ordinated effort will have a bigger impact on the board.

"With more people saying the same thing, maybe the school board will have to listen," she said. "They’re elected members and if you have a strong population saying, ‘No, we don’t want to lose our community schools in any community,’ then if they close them they’re not really representing the rights of the people."
