SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- On Tuesday, the first of five meetings will be held to discuss restructuring schools in the Schenectady City School District.
The board of education recently unveiled a plan to convert the Central Park, Mont Pleasant, and Oneida schools to middle schools for grades six through eight.
The district will seek approval to renovate Oneida with a referendum in January. Under the plan, other elementary schools in the district would house grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. The Elmer Avenue School would be the exception, as it is set to close in 2016.
The plan also includes a complete redistricting to begin next September.
Tuesday's meeting is being held in the cafeteria of the Mont Pleasant Middle School and begins at 6 p.m. Superintendent Larry Spring will be on hand to answer questions and address concerns.
