FORTVILLE — Students who have become used to attending an alternative school at Maxwell Intermediate School in Greenfield will have a new place for instruction after spring break.
They’ll be heading to the old Fortville Elementary School, 1806 W. Ind. 234 in Fortville, pending board approval from the Mt. Vernon school district in January.
Hancock Shelby Madison Education Services moved forward with plans for the move from Greenfield to Fortville out of a need for more space.
“With the growth of students and programming, issues with storage and things of that nature, we just need more room,” director Karen Niemeier said.
The alternative school offers programming primarily for 40 middle school and high school students with special needs each day.
