Elementary Consolidation Consideration

Due to declining enrollment, the Fleetwood Area School District contracted with Thompson Associates in combination with the Pennsylvania Economy League to conduct a Demographic/Enrollment Study.  As a component of this work, the district held two Community Forums, one in October and one in November of 2018. The information shared the expected decrease in enrollment and identified possible solutions for the district. The outcome of this work was shared at the School Board Meeting on December 4, 2018 .  Included in the summary, was a recommendation by Thompson Associates to consolidate elementary schools in the Fleetwood Area School District by closing Richmond Elementary.  Therefore, a presentation was done on January 8, 2019 to outline a plan for the closing of Richmond Elementary.  Below are the presentations and videos from the meetings that are listed above.
