CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County School District is working to make big changes for schools in West Ashley.

On Monday, parents and concerned citizens have a chance to give feedback on changes proposed by community stakeholders, like combining schools and new attendance lines.

In West Ashley, those changes could mean combining C.E Williams and West Ashley Advance studies Middle schools. The district says this would strengthen advance studies and STEM programs.

Parents will also have the chance to sit down with the mission critical action (MCA) team members and discuss the pros and cons of redrawing attendance lines, academics for the new Stono Park Elementary school and the future of the new state-of -the -art career technology center.

A group designated by the district will go through the feedback from the mission critical meetings and make suggestions on what could be put into action.

The community will then have another opportunity to give their input on those suggestions.

According to the district’s timeline, the recommendations are supposed to be presented to the school board by June 30.

This meeting is an opportunity for parents to tell district leaders what works and doesn't work and what issues they hope to see resolved in West Ashley schools.

The meeting is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at West Ashley High School.
