Parents line up overnight for school choice

November 3, 2008 5:13:56 AM PST
Parents began lining up as early as 2 p.m. Sunday to enroll their children in the limited number of school choice slots in the Brandywine School District.

About three dozen parents were waiting by late Sunday evening for the offices to open Monday morning.

Carla Woods of Claymont wants to enroll her 11-year-old son at Springer Middle School because Hanby Middle School is closing after the current school year.

With school closings and new grade configurations in the district, new feeder patterns are being drawn to accommodate the changes.
