Community member at Kennedy HS meeting suggests closing Lisbon.

The mood at the Kennedy meeting projected a different sense of solidarity within the community in that no one in the audience seemed concerned about closing schools.

The meeting ended early at 7:30 since there were no more questions.

Community Questions:
Why does Lisbon have 45% enrollment of resident students?
Lisbon is not attracting resident students.
Test scores are declining at Lisbon (one year – 08 -, went from 753 to 741 ed.)
Tutoring programs are not up to speed.

Community Ideas:
Consider closing Lisbon and opening a junior high in the West Area.
Add programs to Lisbon.
Make schools K – 8.
