North Ave. school proposal
A few months ago, I reported that, with all the downsizing at North Avenue, Dr. Alonso wants to open a school in the building to operate alongside the administration.
Now, officials confirm that they are investigating the possibility of placing the new alternative middle school for overage students at the central office. They're still trying to figure out whether it would work logistically. The Rising Star Academy is scheduled to open when classes resume Aug. 25, serving 200 overage middle school students in the morning and 200 in the evening.
