CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools staff is recommending some serious changes for students. It will include closing some schools, consolidating others, ending some programs, and creating a year round school for two facilities.
The staff has recommended to close Amay James Pre-K, Chantilly Elementary, Highland Mill Elementary, Irwin Avenue Elementary, Pawtuckett Elementary, University Park Elementary, Villa Heights Elementary, Bishop Spaugh Academy, Davidson IB Middle, John Taylor Williams Middle, Wilson Middle, and Smith Language Academy, which is K-8.
CMS is also recommending a year round magnet school at Myers Park Elementary and First Ward Creative Arts Elementary (University Park Creative Arts Elementary students would be sent to First Ward and the programs would combine).
Villa Heights Elementary students would be sent to the Elizabeth Elementary building.
Pawtuckett Elementary students would be sent to Whitewater Academy.
Davidson IB Middle School students would be sent, along with their IB program, to Alexander Middle School.
Cochrane Middle School would actually be converted to house grades 6-12 under the proposal.
Other schools would go from just having elementary students to K-8. These schools include Ashley Park Elementary, Berryhill Elementary, Druid Hills Elementary, Lincoln Heights Elementary, Reid Park Elementary, Thomasboro Elementary, Walter G. Byers Elementary, and Westerly Hills Elementary.
Another part of the plan calls for relocating the Smith Language Academy, which is K-8, to the current site of Waddell High School. Waddell would no longer be a high school, and the students would be reassigned to South Meck High, West Meck High, and Harding University High.
There are a lot of other changes to other schools being proposed as well. For instance, boundary changes would help relieve overcrowding at Ballantyne Elementary, Highland Creek Elementary, Torrence Creek Elementary, Community House Middle, and Mint Hill Middle.
There's also a lot of schools that would get some assistance from CMS. To see their names, CLICK HERE and go to page 8.
