MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Parents are protesting against plans to consolidate South Side Middle School with Riverview Middle School for the 2015-2016 school year.

Concerned parents met outside of South Side on Friday to voice opinions as to why they believe the district should work harder to fix the school's problems rather than consolidate.

Shelby County Schools has yet to make a final decision. A community meeting is scheduled for Feb. 9.

By keeping the South Side Middle School in its current location, parents believe it will help stabilize students' learning experiences and keep the community together.
