KENMORE, N.Y. (WIVB) - It’s back to school in the Ken-Ton and West Seneca districts Thursday. Students and parents in Kenmore faced some uncertainty at the end of last year. Declining enrollment had the board weighing different consolidation plans.
Jefferson Elementary was closed at the end of last year. Many students from there will now be starting at Hoover Elementary Thursday. Administrators and board members are still trying to decide whether any more campuses will close.
Some West Seneca students will be starting at different schools Thursday, too. The district consolidated East Elementary. That means fifth and sixth graders are moving over to East Middle School.
Kindergarten through fourth grade students will be sent to Clinton Elementary. The school board is hoping the consolidation will save them $7.5 million.
