Board of Denver Public Schools votes to merge charter school with Lincoln High

DENVER - The board of Denver Public Schools has voted to move a middle school charter into Lincoln High School.

Protestors held up signs as the board voted Thursday night. There have been previous meetings where the school board heard complaints from parents, teachers and the community, who say they fear overcrowding.

Students from Compass Academy will join Lincoln High at the 2017-2018 school year, under this vote.

The district has said Lincoln's enrollment is on the decline and that many schools within the district, and charters, share buildings.

The principal says Lincoln High has room for 2,000 students and now has only 1,400.
