The multimillion-dollar cost-saving recommendations will merge Locke Elementary into Georgia Avenue Elementary; Orleans Elementary into Lincoln Elementary; Stafford Elementary into Cummings Elementary; Walker Elementary into Ford Road Elementary; and Dunn Elementary into Norris Elementary. The schools are at or below 50 percent capacity and has an enrollment of 300 students or less. Six key factors helped evaluate any potential mergers.
Those factors include building capacity and student population, optimal size for school buildings, neighborhood population and housing trends, proximity to neighboring school, educational profile, and physical history/condition of the building.
- The informational meeting for residents in the Dunn and Norris Elementary Schools’ communities is scheduled for Tuesday, February 8 from 5:30
