Engelhardt, Engelhardt and Leggett, Inc., Purdy Station, NY.
This is a study which sets forth the pertinent facts concerning the possible centralization of the school districts of Broadalbin, Edinburg, Mayfield, Northville, and Perth, located in New York State. An appraisal of advantages and disadvantages of certain possible courses of action is presented with cost estimates. There are 6 major parts of the study included: (1) enrollment projections; (2) school building or facilities analyses; (3) curriculum needs; (4) school district reorganization--an analysis conducted in New Jersey; (5) financial considerations; and (6) recommendations. It is recommended that the 5 school districts proceed to take the necessary steps to reorganize into a single unit, to build a single 1,200-pupil high school (9-12), and to renovate and convert existing facilities for K-8. A time table is recommended by which the procedures would begin in September 1969 and conclude in December 1973. (SW)
