ATLANTA - During the Thursday evening Atlanta Community Schools Board of Education meeting, concerned parents approached the board about education and the quickly approaching school year. While the board attempted to resolve different issues regarding the school year and budget, it could not solve one.
Atlanta resident Jennifer Pryor announced she will be withdrawing three of her children from Atlanta. She also requested that her name and her husband's name be removed from the Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Educational Service District lawsuits.
Darlene Cordes also approached the board in regards to her son Charles' IEP and education at Pied Piper Opportunity Center for the school year.
"His IEP expired in May and the prior agreement was signed by Teresa Stauffer' it got him through the end of last year. I'm looking for resolution," Cordes said.
After listening to Cordes' concerns the board approved Superintendent Don Haskin Jr. to contact Sue Grulke, director of special education for the AMA ESD, for a specific agreement for Charles to attend Pied Piper for the 2012-13 school year if it does not affect current litigation.
"This will be handled as soon as possible," Haskin said.
