COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--The Columbus City Schools Board of Education is rejecting a plan to make major changes to several of their buildings.
The Board voted Wednesday to reject the recommendations from a district task force which proposed the closure of five schools.
Parents and teachers in attendance cheered the decision.
Board members did follow the task force's recommendations to adjust the attendance boundaries for the elementary schools of Highland, West Broad, Maize, North Linden, and Westgate.
The task force had held numerous public meetings to take feedback from students and parents on the consolidation plan, which included shifting students to many different schools, especially in the Linden area and on the east and south sides.
