Consolidation transition

Title I Supervisor Lloyd Taylor and Millington Elementary School Principal Kris Hemstetter discuss Monday the district’s efforts to consolidate its five elementary schools to three.

ROCK HALL — The Kent County Board of Education learned Monday night about the district’s transition efforts in consolidating its five elementary schools down to three and took a moment to thank a parent group for its support during the process.

Faced with a continuing trend of declining student enrollment district-wide and the resulting financial losses, board members voted earlier this year to close Millington and Worton elementary schools. At the start of the 2017-18 academic year, the remaining schools will be H.H. Garnet Elementary School in Chestertown, Galena Elementary School and Rock Hall Elementary School.
