Former School Board Member Lois Ann Handrich faced those who opposed her idea for a Northeast school just a few years ago. She's now representing CHANGE, a local political action group.
She says the group supports an elementary school in the northeast quadrant of the city - preferably on Vine Street. Handrich says the location would cut back on transportation costs and would give more children the chance to walk to school.
In 2000, 310 kids lived in the northeast city quadrant. Of those, most are bused to either Stone Spring or Waterman schools.
