TUSD releases list of schools possibly to be consolidated

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson News Now has learned the Tucson Unified School District governing board released the list of schools that it will consider for closure on Tuesday night. 

The closures are being considered to help make up for a $17 million budget shortfall. 

Their consolidation plan lays out the schools that could potential close as well as the schools that will receive the students affected by the closures.

While the board decided last week to limit the number of closures to ten schools, the two scenarios have a total of 15 schools, which gives the board options for its decision. 

Also, the board can vote to begin closure proceedings on more schools than it intends to close. 

A federal court will likely weigh in on the board's closure decisions, which means that the entire closure process, from the start to the final vote, could take up to 80 days.

Those who want to weigh in as the board consider its options can come to their meeting at Catalina High School tomorrow night starting at 6 p.m.

The governing board will look at both options and both scenarios.  At this moment, the administration has carried out with the ten schools that the governing board directed to bring back and we will determine and consider the second schools and we'll look at that and we'll determine how that helps the district financially and academically," said TUSD Governing Board Member Miguel Cuevas.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
