Why School Efficiency

  • The school district, with direction from the Board of Education, is looking into options to close or repurpose a small number of school buildings. Why the district is pursuing these options includes:

    • Better Student Services - More students in fewer school buildings means more teachers and more class options.

    • Changing Enrollment - Enrollment has declined over time while total district buildings have increased.

    • Financial Impacts - The district is facing large deficits that must be addressed and that are driving the timeline of school efficiency.
