POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – Elementary students could be leaving classrooms at two Poland school buildings over the next two years.
The Ohio School Facilities Commission told the district enrollment would go down by several hundred students over the next few years.
They say Poland won’t need six school buildings any more. The district is thinking about moving students out of North and McKinley Elementary schools over the next two years.
“Every school district is reducing in enrollment throughout the state of Ohio. I think that is pretty indicative of what is happening across Ohio as well as nationally. We are mirroring what is happening county-wide as well as statewide and nationally,” said Superintendent David Janofa.
Under the current plan, North Elementary would be used for pre-school programs, and McKinley would be torn down.
The school board will make the final decision.
