Dance Recommends Eastwood Elementary Closure

The school system superintendent's staff presented the recommendation to the Board of Education Tuesday night.

School system Superintendent Dallas Dance recommended the closure of Eastwood Elementary School in Dundalk at a Tuesday night Board of Education meeting

As part of the recommendation, Eastwood, Norwood Elementary School and Holabird Middle school will operate as one K-8 school on the Norwood and Holabird campuses.

The closure of the Eastwood facility is part of a larger plan by County Executive Kevin Kamenetz to sell property to construct new county buildings. The Eastwood property may be used for a new police precinct.

A public hearing on the consolidation is scheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 12 at Dundalk High School.

The Board of Education will vote on the matter in March.

Not if he builds a PUD. Then you are going to get a little bit of everything homes, offices, retail.. Probably a strip shopping center at the intersection.

"There is always more to the story." I am so with you on this thought.

Yes, but where are the stats used to come up with this decision. I think that is what people need to see.
