More than 500 people have signed a petition stating their support for the renovation of Scott High School, according to the Save Our Scott campaign.
Members of the group, made up of the school s alumni association and the Old West End Association, spent the weekend at the African-American Festival seeking support and plan to continue the effort by going door-to-door in the Scott neighborhood.
The petition demands Toledo Public Schools renovate Scott to its former grandeur.
The debate is how to renovate Toledo s oldest public high school, which is on Collingwood Boulevard.
The Ohio School Facilities Commission, which pays for the bulk of the district s building program, will not contribute enough money for a full renovation, and the district does not have enough funds to make up the difference.
