The Alexander County Board of Education has a meeting scheduled for Monday. Among the items on a very heavy agenda is discussion of perhaps consolidating 2 elementary schools. The Budget Committee will submit a proposal that will make public the possibility of school consolidation. Enrollment in the County Schools system has been dropping in recent years and the Board of Education is looking at numerous solutions to the problem. No decision on the proposal is anticipated Monday. Alexander County Schools Superintendent Jennifer Hefner said that “many different things are being discussed by the Board” and the proposal submitted Monday is just one of many. We will continue to follow the story in the coming weeks including a report on Monday’s meeting.
