RIDGEFIELD, Conn. - An elementary school in Ridgefield could close by the 2014-2015 school year, officials said Tuesday night.
With enrollment down 800 students, the town has chosen to close a school, but not decided which one, Superintendent Deborah Low said. The town may not vote on which school until December.
"Everyone must agree that closing a school would be an appropriate use of resources," Low said.
The Board of Education met with the Board of Finance to discuss the closing Tuesday. Board of Finance member Marty Heiser said that closing a school would save $1 million to $1.5 million.
"It seems to me that student population is going down and a decision needs to be made," Heiser said.
