The Shoreham-Wading River school board is expected to continue discussions Tuesday night about future plans for the district’s elementary school program.

During the school board’s Nov. 13 meeting, administrators discussed two options. The first plan would split the kindergarteners between Miller Avenue and Wading River elementary schools. The other option — the so-called “Princeton plan” — puts all the first- and second-graders in one elementary school, with the remaining grades up to fifth into the other elementary school. Both plans will include two drafts: one with Briarcliff Elementary School opened and with it closed.

The school board will also begin discussing the district’s secondary program options and selection classification within the athletic program, according to the meeting’s agenda.

The pubic portion of the meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Miller Avenue Elementary School located at 3 Miller Avenue in Shoreham.
