The Cleveland Metropolitan School District has announced it will close, merge, or relocate several kindergarten through eighth grade elementary schools as part of a wide-ranging modernization plan.
The district says the schools involved are either in older buildings, have declining enrollment, or have received below average performance grades. The decision is not final, however, with the approval of the Board of Education still required.
Under the plan, the following schools would be closed for good:
- Michael R. White
In addition, the following mergers would take place:
- Kenneth W. Clement Boys’ Leadership Academy-Valley View Boys’ Leadership Academy (relocated to existing building)
- Bolton-Dike School of the Arts (relocated to existing building)
- Clark-Walton (relocated to new or renovated building)
- Denison-Charles A. Mooney (relocated to new or renovated building)
Finally, Tremont Montessori will be fully relocated to an existing building. Joseph M. Gallagher, Marion C. Seltzer and Douglas MacArthur Girls’ Leadership Academy would also receive either fully new buildings or major renovations.
