Yorktown Superintendent Ralph Napolitano will lay out merger plans for the district’s elementary school buildings with the intention of closing one of them.
It’s unclear as yet which of the four buildings would be closed. Napolitano will unveil the proposal at Monday’s Board of Education meeting at Yorktown High School off Route 202. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
District staff will be briefed on the plan prior to the meeting and will get a full presentation Tuesday. If adopted by the school board, it would be implemented this fall.
Napolitano was charged by trustees with studying consolidation as a means to cut costs entering the upcoming budget season. Declining enrollment may make closing a building a viable option. The district might then seek to lease the space.
