There will be no mention of Prides Corner- John C.L. Morgan
Elementary School in the school budget that Superintendent Marc Gousse
recommends to the Westbrook School Committee for next year.Gousse told about 80
0people at a community forum Thursday evening that he couldn't "with good
conscience" advise the committee to keep the school open.The closure of Prides
Corner is part of larger proposal to reconfigure the city's elementary grades
and address a $2.2 million shortfall in the budget.
Full disclosure: I teach at Westbrook High School.
