Ridgefield Schools will be holding a public hearing tonight to discuss the possibility of closing an elementary school within the next few years.
The meeting, to be held 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Board of Education room at the Town Hall Annex, will give Ridgefielders a chance to weigh in on what has been a contentious issue so far to potentially close a school due to falling enrollment.
Recently, the district posted a survey to measure the town's feelings regarding the issue.
So far, no official decisions have been made regarding the possible closing, but discussions by the school board have indicated that it would be in the district's best interest financially to close an elementary school once enrollment reaches 2,000 or lower, which it is predicted to do by 2014.
Check the Ridgefield Patch tomorrow for details about the public hearing.
