The South Bend School Board is considering options to keep the state from taking over a pair of failing schools.
Changes are being considered for Marquette Montessori and Muessel Elementary Schools next year.
WSBT reports that the two schools have had four years of failing state grades and the district is trying to avoid a state takeover of the schools. The district told parents they have no plans to close either school, but a redesign is being considered.
A vote is planned for March 1 to finalize the future direction of the struggling schools.
