LAGRANGEVILLE, N.Y. -- A decision is expected to be made on Tuesday about possible school closings in the Arlington School District.
The board of education will vote on Tuesday on the proposal by Superintendent Brendon Lyons. He proposed closing the Arthur S. May Elementary School in Poughkeepsie, and send those students to the Arlington Middle School.
Current Arlington Middle School students would be sent to the other two middle schools within the district. Lyons says the proposal is a result of declining enrollment.
The move would save the district $1.7 million. However, many parents and teachers feel the savings isn't worth it. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m.
