Preschool and special education programs at Norwalk elementary schools will be shuffled around next year. On Thursday evening, schools Chief Operating Officer Craig Drezek presented the plan at the end of the meeting of the Board of Education's finance committee. The moves were prompted, in part, by the need to make more room availble in Naramake and Rowayton elementary schools without having to purchase portable classrooms. At the meeting, Superintendent Susan Marks said all the principals of the affected schools agreed to the plan.
Here are the changes as presented at the finance committee:
Two emotionally disturbed special education classes to relocate to Tracey
Two special education classes to remain at Rowayton
Two emotionally disturbed special education classes from Rowayton (use pre-k room plus one other)
One pre-k to relocate to Silvermine
English Language Learners Welcome Center from Brookside to Lower Level of Tracey
Two pre-k classes to condense to one and move to Silvermine
Two pre-k classes moving in: one from Tracey and one from Wolfpit
ELL Welcome Center to Tracey
Family Resource Center and preschool to Norwalk High child development center (Center's administration offices to remain at Naramake)
