The school board here on the North Shore wants to sell ‘surplus land’ in order to find money for capital projects.
One of the pieces of land is the Cleveland Forest, and area that for generations kids at Cleveland Elementary have used as a playground. It’s a magic place for them, and they’re incredulous that the board is even thinking of selling it.
Unfortunately, the board seems intent on moving forward with this, despite an overwhelming public response against the idea.
There’s a long way to go yet in the process, but parents are trying their best to keep drawing attention to the issue.
