WACO -- Waco ISD is still looking at proposals for closing and consolidating schools.
At their meeting last night the district considered the "red proposal," which would add 6th grade students to elementary campuses.
The proposal would save around two million dollars in transportation and would not close any campuses.
But the board decided to not follow through with this plan so now the school board is asking super intendant Dr. Bonny Cain for her proposal.
"They finally told Dr. Cain, on February the 14th, bring us something that you propose as the superintendent of schools after examining all of the data that we've been looking at for the past two months, and let's look at it. We my tweak it some, but let's take action on a proposal that you present," Waco ISD spokesman Dale Caffey said.
Waco ISD is coming up on their final days to explore options and here are some dates to remember:
February 10th: Dr. Cain's proposal will be online.
February 14th: The board will meet again and the public is invited to the workshop to work on the proposal.
February 23rd: the final proposal will be presented which will show which schools are closing or consolidating.
