More than 150 parents signed a letter of concern in March regarding falling test scores and rising reports of violence at Mountain View Elementary School.
State records show the school's scores have been dropping in English, history and science, and reports of disruptive behavior have been increasing.
That is not the case at many other elementary schools in Rockingham County.
On Monday night, the Rockingham County School Board called a unique meeting to talk with those parents about their concerns.
Thirteen parents showed up at the meeting, and after the initial meeting was started, the school board voted to have a closed session with 11 of those parents.
The board went into closed session with the parents, because they would be discussing the performance of specific employees at Mountain View Elementary.
Cameras were not allowed in the closed session and none of the 11 parents in the closed meeting would comment.
However, one member of the school board, Gayle Brunk, says, "Well we reviewed the information from the parents, and we will get back in touch, but we have a wonderful school division, and we are all committed to the best for our children."
Brunk also says they are always looking for the best for their students as well as their employees and the school board has addressed the issues brought to it and will be responding to the parents.
