Superintendent Carol Johnson told the Boston Globe that they're looking seriously at closing some schools: "The thing I worry about most is that this news is coming to families at a time when it could be unsettling. . . . I don’t want families to panic, but we have a responsibility to present the economic situation to the community and the School Committee."
The Globe then said that "Pursuing school closings at this point for next year could create headaches for many families because parents have already begun submitting school choices for next year." That's putting it mildly. They said school closings for this fall would be a "last resort."
The School Committee is discussing the recommendations for cuts at their meeting tonight. They aim to have it finalized by March 24.
