Diocese of Trenton may implement school consolidation plan
(12/09/04) EWING Parents attended a meeting in Ewing Thursday to find out more about a possible catholic school restructuring within the Diocese of Trenton.
The reformatting plan is the result of an enrollment drop in some urban schools within the diocese. Officials working for the diocese say the plummeting enrollment has been partly caused by a migration of families from the city to the suburbs.
Four city schools may be consolidated into one institution, and diocese officials say maintaining a high level of education is paramount. Teachers working at the schools in question would have to reapply for their jobs within the restructured system.
