New Wicomico Public School Boundaries Opposed by Some Parents

wicboe logo

There is a plan to move 150 students from Bennett Middle School to avoid overcrowding.

Wicomico Public School system would move 90 to Salisbury Middle School and another 60 to Wicomico Middle School.

The school system has held two public hearings to get community input.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that some parents feel they have not been heard.

Allison Veals told the paper that she felt it didn’t matter what they told school officials.

Veals has a daughter in the seventh grade at Bennett Middle School.

The paper reports that the new boundaries would only impact middle school students now in grades five through seven.

These changes would not affect the high school they would attend in the future.
