Students Looking to Transfer Following Muncie Vote

by Sammy Edmonds posted Dec 9 2013 3:18PM
The Muncie School Board's decision to close one of the city's two high schools has some students looking to enroll elsewhere.
Officials from school districts outside Muncie say they've talked with numerous students and parents about transferring since the vote earlier this month to turn Muncie Southside High School into a middle school. Muncie Central will be the district's only high school beginning next year.
Cowan Superintendent Dennis Chambers tells “The Star Press” about 15 Muncie students have started the process to transfer in January, but some grades in the Cowan schools can't accept more students.
Officials with Monroe Central and Delaware Community schools say they've talked with about two dozen Muncie students about transfers to their schools.
Muncie schools officials say declining enrollment and budget troubles forced the consolidation decision.
