Purdue Polytechnic hosts Community Action meeting
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- At 4 p.m. on Wednesday Polytechnic High School hosts a Community Action meeting for people from South Bend to discuss possible solutions for bring back students to South Bend Schools.
Over 2000 students who live in South Bend, opted to attend private education schools in surrounding areas such as Mishawaka Penn High School.
Members around the community, including members of SBCSC, had a small group discussion about the issue.
"I think there is a lot of great things in all schools in our city, and the point of this meeting tonight is to highlight that and see if we can duplicate it all over schools in the town." Said Principal of Purdue Polytechnic High School, Justin Zobrosky.
"I just really think that if we empower our teachers, we'll attract great ones, they'll take care of our students, and our students will take of our community." Zobrosky added.
Due to the lack of enrollment, the South Bend Community School Corporation has considered closing several facilities.
