Concord parents concerned about threatened school closures staged another rally Friday. Several dozen parents, students and employees of Silverwood Elementary School held a demonstration to try and save their school.

Silverwood is one of seven schools the Mt. Diablo Unified School District is considering closing to trim $12 million from its budget.

A school board committee is expected to present its recommendations on Wednesday.
