A contentious issue was decided at Monday’s night’s Hamilton Public School Board meeting and it is one that angered about two dozen parents in attendance.
Trustees agreed to close Hill Park and Barton next June, two years earlier than expected.
Education Director John Malloy says it was due to declining enrollment.
New high school boundaries will also be implemented across the mountain in September of next year.
Barton is to be used as a holding facility until the new mountain high school opens, south of the Linc, in 2016.
