Florida Middle School Acronym Causes Stir With Parents
Parents and students are concerned about a new middle school set to open for the next school year. The Orange County School District is wrapping up the construction of Innovation Park Middle School, which sounds innocent enough but a quick abbreviation to an acronym spells out the problem, IPMS. To add to the melee are the proposed school colors of red, white and black. An online petition have received nearly 200 names who support a name change before the schools opens. Christal Feldman, who started the petition, says it’s an already an awkward time for kids and middle schoolers can be harsh and mean to each other. The school board said they would look into the issue.
