The Shoreham-Wading River school board is expected to continue its discussion tonight of a plan to reorganize the district’s elementary schools.
The proposal would divide students, with all kindergarteners going to Briarcliff school, grades 1-3 attending school at Miller Avenue and grades 4 and 5 moving to the Wading River school. The proposal is known as the “Princeton Plan.”
In addition, the school board is expected to replace William Bushman, assistant superintendent for human resources, with current assistant superintendent Lou Curra on an interim basis.
Last Tuesday, the Smithtown school board appointed Mr. Bushman as the district’s new assistant superintendent for pupil personnel services.
