District moves forward with plan for Boardman middle schools

Boardman School District moves forward with a plan to realign its middle schools.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Boardman school district is moving ahead with a plan to realign its middle schools.

About 100 people attended a meeting at Center Middle School on Monday night to talk about the plan that would make Center for fifth and sixth grade and Glenwood Middle School for seventh and eighth grade.

Superintendent Frank Lazzeri says a reason for the change is that classes at Glenwood are 25 percent larger than those at Center.

“We aren’t decreasing the opportunities for kids. We’re trying to increase those,” he said. “I think the parents brought to light what their concerns are and this will help…the decision-making process going forward.”

Lazzeri also says they’ll consider a parent’s suggestion about changing bus routes and bus stops.

If the Board approves the school changes, they would take effect in the 2016-2017 school year.
