Superintendent’s new plan restructures city school buildings


Three city school buildings would close next year, two would change functions while grade alignment would change in several others under a restructuring plan presented today by Superintendent Connie Hathorn.

Under his plan, both P. Ross Berry and Volney Rogers and University Project Learning Center would close next year. Berry, on the East Side, is a school for eighth graders while sixth and seventh graders attend Volney, which is on the city’s West Side.

UPLC, the district’s alternative school for second through 12th graders, is in the former Mary Haddow School.

Wilson, also a sixth and seventh grade school, would become the district’s new alternative school.

For the 2014 to 2015 school year, Berry would be considered for the district’s administrative offices, which are now housed in the Irene Ward Building on Wood Street. Volney would be considered for a choice school.

Kirkmere Elementary would become Discovery Program for third through eighth graders, offering specialty courses for Spanish, engineering/math, visual arts, performing arts, investigative science and creative communications.
