PASCO, Wash.-- The Pasco School District is that much closer to setting the boundaries for the next school year. The board heard for the last time from concerned parents Wednesday night.

With entire neighborhoods on the cusp, many fought to try to keep kids together. Option three had the most support Wednesday night; that option includes homes in Madison Park and a few neighborhoods north of Burden Boulevard to go to Franklin Elementary.

It's the option gaining the most traction, using major roadways as boundaries and alleviating many safety concerns.

Many parents asked the board to drop the opt-in program for Franklin to accommodate more neighborhoods near the school. The board president Sherry Lancon told me that is not up for discussion. The opt-in program will stay, she said. The board will make their decision next week.
