Meanwhile, in early March the Board of Education informally approved a recommendation from Harrison to suspend the current search for a new Main Street School principal based on a consultant’s building utilization study that may suggest closing the school based on projected declining enrollment.

“I think the combination of excess building capacity and projected declining enrollment will compel us as a community to have conversations about how we use our building assets going forward,” Harrison said. “This will take a good amount of time and focus, especially into the next school year, and does not necessarily mean that change is going to occur. But it will be a very significant challenge, and perhaps our most prominent focus next year.”
