Next round of community meetings for TUSD

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, the Tucson Unified School District will start a series of meetings about the closures of 11 schools. 

Parents will soon find out where their students might be going to school next year.  The first meeting will be at Menlo Park, one of the schools listed for closure.  This will be the first meeting to discuss the boundary changes of the neighborhood schools. 

The Tucson Unified School District voted to close 11 schools to help bridge the $17 million budget gap.  They now want feedback on the next step. 

Today the public can weigh in on the recommended schools the affected students would be transferring to.  The district is required by law to hold these neighborhood meetings.  The consolidation process must go through public meetings and then be approved by the federal court. 

The first meeting is for the central and west side neighborhoods, and will be held at Menlo Park from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this evening.  Additional meetings are being held this week and next week.
