BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT)-  A big vote from the Birmingham School Board is set for Wednesday night that could shift more than a hundred elementary students from Jones Valley K-8 to the new school being built at Oxmoor Valley. This change would turn Jones Valley into a middle school.

Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon says the plan would alleviate overcrowding, provide opportunity for more class offerings, and eliminate mobile classrooms. Parents, however, are concerned about the distance of the new route for their children.

The vote is scheduled to take place May 15th in the administrative building at 6pm.
