Rosendale students re-assigned as a group. K-8 structure for some students. Transportation minimal.

CHALLENGES
Scheduling issues gym, cafeteria Art & music likely on a cart K-4 & 5-8 structure Given that we have three sites - equity in class size is an issue at K-4 level (16-26). Significant reduction in space potential impact on 5th-8th grade program. Funnel three elementary-based programs into 5th-8th grade program. Impact student program consistency & staff development coordination. Greater mixing of grades 5-8 students (specials, cafeteria).

Scenario 5: K-3 Elementary School (Kerhonkson) K-3 Elementary School (Rosendale & Marbletown students on Main Campus) Grade 4-6 Upper Elementary School (Main Campus) Grade 7-8 Middle School (Marbletown) One Grade 9-12 High School (Main Campus) OPPORTUNITIES West campus grades K-3 (currently KES) has ample space. Main campus grades K-3 & grades 4-6 has ample space. Reduction of two grade level positions while maintaining small class size at the main campus Transport K-6 students on the same bus tier. Program consistency. Projected enrollment of 856 students K-6 students on main campus. CHALLENGES Bathrooms at Marbletown and main campus need to be addressed. On main campus grades K-3 & 4-6 would need to share cafeteria. KES may realize higher class size without redistricting. 7th- 8th grade band would be offered either in the gym or stage. Science program would need to be investigated. Home/Careers and Technology would need to be investigated (need to refurbish rooms). No lockers or locker rooms.

Inconsistencies in delivery of program and staff development across 3 buildings. Capacity concerns at three sites. Transportation approximately 300 more students on the elementary run. K-8 configuration underutilizes the main campus site.
