PROPOSAL FOR GRADE


CONFIGURATION AND SCHOOL
USAGE FOR 2010-2011
Accelerated Timeline of Closing a School
2

y Based on enrollment, a Monroe school


could be closed by 2014-2015.

y Based on current enrollment and fiscal


constraints, the timeline for closing a
school is moved up to 2010-11.
What Does Closing a School Earlier Than
Anticipated Mean?
3

y The district can “fit” its students and


programs in existing spaces, but there
will be some compromises.
Transportation Parameters
4

y Transportation requirements for the proposed Early


Childhood Learning Center preclude this option
from being a consideration for the district. This
would be either too costly or have young students
travelling too early or late in the day.

y Transportation can be addressed for moving 8th


grade to high school.
