The future of Coleytown Middle School became a bit clearer this morning.
The school was closed in September, due to mold. Since then, 6th and 7th graders have attended Bedford Middle School; 8th graders are at Staples High.
Meeting today, the Community Advisory Committee whittled 9 options for the future down to 3.
The CAC sent these recommendations to the Board of Education tonight (7:30 p.m., Staples High School cafeteria):
- All elementary schools become K-6, with the addition of flex space and/or portables, until CMS is reopened or new space is found. All 7th and 8th graders attend Bedford Middle School.
- Find a rental location to house the 6th graders, and keep all elementary schools K-5. All 7th and 8th graders attend Bedford Middle School.
- Find a rental location to house Coleytown Middle School.
One more parent feedback session is set for this Thursday (December 6, 7:30 p.m., location to be determined).
