MCPS Considering Closing Two Schools?

From The Roanoke Times

If a school system closes a school, what happens?

  • What happens to the building?
  • how are buses rerouted?
  • do you break up classrooms and send some kids to one school, and others to another?
  • if teachers and administration aren’t needed elsewhere, what happens to those jobs?
  • if you close the school and keep it “in-system”, there are maintenance and upkeep and utility costs. what do those cost versus keeping it open? I know there’s a difference, wonder how much.
  • if Montgomery County grows like census figures project (writing from my phone and the link escapes me right now), does it make sense to keep these schools open and up-to-date in order to prepare for the future?

So many wrinkles.
