The debate rages on over the future of Regina's historic Connaught School.

There were some passionately-expressed opinions Tuesday night at a meeting between parents and the school board.

Officials want to close the century-old school for good by June, citing safety and structural reasons.

Many parents argue the school can be saved and needs further testing. 

"It's really rushed. We need more time," said Theresa Hohna, parent of a Connaught student. "We just want them to hear us as a community and as concerned parents."

The school board says it hopes to announce a final decision within a month.
