The Montgomery Public School System held its final public forum Friday night on the proposal to close four schools. Parents and teachers of Pintlala Elementary filled Pintlala Baptist Church to fight for their school to remain open. The school board proposed closing four schools to help with budget cuts. Besides Pintlala Elementary, the board also recommended closing Hayneville Road Elementary, Paterson Elementary and Houston Hill Junior Hight.
The board is expected to vote on these closings next month.
