options reviewed
Options Reviewed

Option A – Build a new secondary complex.

Costly – No funding – Not feasible

Option B – Consolidate Aldrich in Pilgrim and Gorton into Veterans.

Age difference too big between grades 7 to 12 – A Middle School model would not be feasible for several years.

Option C – Close a Junior High School and a High School, consolidating into the remains secondary buildings.

A larger school would be closed – Consolidating into remaining Junior High Schools would be tight – A Middle School model would not be feasible for several years.

Option D – Consolidate High Schools into two schools. Then consolidate Aldrich and Gorton into repurposed High School and Winman.

High School Students and Sports Teams will be affected.
