Listening session about relocating Green Meadow Elementary students scheduled Wednesday

Anyone with an opinion on where to house the fourth and fifth graders who formally went to Green Meadow Elementary School will have a chance to speak up Wednesday.

The Oshkosh school board closed Green Meadow, a fourth- and fifth-grade-only school, in 2009 and relocated its students to Perry Tipler. The move was intended as a temporary fix while creating a permanent solution through a district-wide strategic plan.

Three years later, several frustrated parents are asking the board to finally address the issue.

The board scheduled a public listening session at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Perry Tipler Middle School cafeteria to hear suggestions.

“I have met with enough individuals to know there’s mixed opinions from families. There’s no one solution that will satisfy everyone,” said Superintendent Stan Mack II. “But, the question is what are the possibilities and is there any consensus at all?”
