MAY 2009...from The Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Recognizing a lack of support from school board members, Minneapolis school district officials say they will revise a downsizing plan that would have closed four school buildings and redrawn elementary school boundaries. The long-awaited plan was unveiled at a school board meeting April 28 and would have affected about a third of the district's 32,500 students. The district has had several years of declining enrollments and faces a $28 million deficit.
