The Daily Progress has a story today about the recommendation made by the School Board's Long Range Planning Committee to Superintendent Pam Moran regarding the future of Yancey, Scottsville, and Red Hill Elementary Schools. I have uploaded a copy of their letter to Dr. Moran here.
Combine 3 small schools, panel says
8/30/09 * Daily Progress [full story]A committee is calling for three elementary schools in southern Albemarle County to be shut down and replaced with one big school.
Though officials have not decided whether to close the schools, the recommendation is a blow to parents who are fighting to keep the three schools open and believe their children do better in small, community schools.
A copy of the committee’s letter to Superintendent Pamela Moran was obtained by The Daily Progress late last week.
The Long Range Planning Advisory Committee had been charged with making a recommendation to Moran about whether to renovate or consolidate Red Hill, Yancey and Scottsville elementary schools. Moran has asked for additional information and plans to make a recommendation to the School Board on Sept. 24 about what to do with the three schools.
