Deputy Superintendent Leroy Nunery said Wednesday that there will be no school closings this September, even though the District is counting on some savings next year by implementing parts of its facilities master plan.

Besides school closings, other options include school consolidation, relocation, expansion, and co-location with charter schools. Those options are still on the table for this fall, a spokesperson said.

The School Reform Commission will hold a public meeting on April 7 to reveal more details about implementation of the plan.
