South Bend, Ind. A controversial issue that was up for debate during Monday night's School Board meeting was whether or not to renew the contract with a local alternative school, The Crossing.
In the past, students struggling in the regular system could turn to The Crossing for help. But the School Corporation's contract with the alternative school expired last month.
The item wasn't on the initial agenda, but many people spoke out on the matter asking board members to think of the best interest of the students.
After hearing several people speak, the board voted 5-2, recommending a contract negotiation.
