District Considers Juggling Elementary Programs

At tonight's school board meeting, district officials presented very preliminary school closure options.  The plan presented by Chief Operations Officer Sam Bell would call for closing the following school buildings:

and moving students and programs for several others.  Wainwright students would attend Delong and Geiger, while McKinley's current program would end and its students would move to Blix and Lyon.  Park Avenue students would then relocate to McKinley.
