Parents packed Tuesday night's school board meeting, angry about the district's rezoning plans. They were hoping to change the board members' minds, but after hours of debate, it didn't happen.
Parents stormed out of the board room late Tuesday evening. In all, nearly 13,000 students district-wide will be forced to attend different schools next year, despite passionate pleas from parents.
Parents lined up and sounded off. They want their kids to stay at the school they're already zoned for.
"I've spent many hours trying to understand how something so illogical to me makes sense to anybody else," said Mary Saladino.
Students don't want to move either, "Out of my entire circle of friends, inside the band and out, I am the only one being forced to leave Coronado."
The district says reworking school boundaries is necessary because some campuses are overcrowded and others are under capacity.
