Parents Join Forces to Open New School

ELKRIDGE, Md. -- For the first time, Kristin Fleckenstein's daughter Lucy had found a school where she can succeed in math. It also was the first place Lucy made friends.
So when Fleckenstein got a call at the end of June that her daughter's school for children with special education needs - the Norbel School in Elkridge - was abruptly closing, it was more than just disappointing.
"It's a crisis," said Fleckenstein, the communications director for the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office.
"The first thing (Lucy) … said when we told her Norbel was closing was, 'But I just started getting invited to birthday parties.' It broke my heart."
