At the December 12, 2016 Board of Education meeting the Board made the difficult decision to close Eastbury Elementary School following the 2017-2018 school year. The vote was based on declining student enrollment and the Board's commitment to provide a high quality education for students at a reasonable cost to taxpayers. It follows intensive research, study, discussion, and public input at Board meetings over a number of years. The Board appreciates administrators and staff members for their work on this issue, parents and community members for taking time to share their thoughts and concerns, and all those who remained patient and involved throughout Board deliberations. Work will soon begin on developing elementary school redistricting plans for the community to review. As always, we will inform the community and invite input during this process.
