A packed house in Davenport Wednesday Night, as more than 100 people showed up at a public hearing, to voice their opinions about the school district's plans to possibly redraw boundary lines.
School Leaders said the changes are needed to address overcrowding issues, and slash more than $3 million dollars to balance the budget.
Davenport parents we talked to, have mixed feelings about changing where students go to class.
"You can't simply think about revenue, and money, you need to think of the students, their opinions, and who I think are simply being overlooked in this debate," said Collin Garrett, a Junior at Central High School.
"If the school district did a little more at just evening the schools, maybe then you wouldn't have these children or families who want to send their kids to a preferred school, because all of them were be preferred," said Stephen Griffiths, a Parent.
School Leaders expect to have a decision in March.
Another public input meeting is being held Thursday Night at North High School, and then two more next week, at Walcott Elementary and West High.
