Franklin County Parents Fired Up Over Reassignment

Posted April 29, 2004 7:41 a.m. EDT

— More than 200 parents showed up at Louisburg Elementary School Wednesday evening to get a first look at a proposed reassignment plan.

The plan would move almost 1,000 students starting next fall.

Franklin County school officials say their hands are tied by a federal desegregation order, which makes reassignment mandatory.

There is no decision on the plan yet. A public hearing is set for 7:30 p.m. Monday night at Louisburg Elementary.
