A special meeting of Columbus School Administrators on Tuesday will look at the recommended closure of seven schools.

The list includes Brookhaven and Independence High Schools and Monroe Middle School. The elementary schools on the list are Arlington Park, Fifth Avenue International, Maybury, and Siebert.

Parent Glenda Willis has a 6th grader at Monroe Middle School. It’s only a block away from her home.

“I’m going to have to find her another school (if they shut down). I hope they don't shut it down,” said Willis.

The closures could affect around 2,500 students.

If approved, the changes would take place this summer.
