Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District officials are considering closing Dry Creek Elementary School in Roseville and expanding Creekview Ranch Middle School.
Board of Trustees and staff will discuss the possible closure during the board meeting tonight, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. where the public is invited to attend and comment.
According to district documents, Dry Creek Elementary students would relocate to Creekview Ranch starting in the 2014-15 school year. Creekview Ranch would expand to serve kindergarten through eighth-grade students.
The closure possibility stems from a list of challenges the district currently faces regarding Dry Creek Elementary School, including the need for intersection and off-site improvements, inadequate infrastructure facilities such as septic, restrooms and kitchen areas, limited access to the school for student drop-off and buses, the lack of a multi-purpose room and the inability to conduct new construction without moving the district office.
