The Peoria Public School board Tuesday approved a restructuring plan that would add or remove grades at 14 district schools.
However, the decision didn’t come without pushback from the public and several board members.
The 6-1 vote came down after two Glen Oak teachers expressed concerns about overcrowding at the school they say is already "over capacity." Under the plan, Glen Oak will add two grades to become a full K-8 school.
But, District spokesman Chris Copelan says enrollment would actually decrease, from its current 856 students to 770.
