Parent starts petition to reopen Central School

A parent of a Central-Linc Elementary School student launched an online petition Monday to gather signatures in support of fixing and reopening Central School.

Christine Brown said she started the petition after receiving about 100 responses from distributing a letter calling for the reopening of Central. She planned to submit it to the Helena Public Schools Board of Trustees and the Independent Record but said the responses led her to change tactics to a petition.
