MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - As the Montgomery School Board approved a resolution to ask the city and county for $3 million for a bond issue, community members and elected officials met at First C.M.E. Church to prepare for a last stand before the board's Thursday vote on the superintendent's school consolidation plan.
Those at the church made plans to march in front of Carver High School before the public hearing at 5 p.m. Thursday. Many at the rally say they want to delay the vote once again to come up with alternatives rather than closing schools.
"No, they haven't been listening, but it's good that we can come together to try and make them listen to what we're actually saying," said Timothy Bass, who spoke at the meeting.
