The second of three community forums hosted by the Lemon Grove School District to hear public feedback on the possibility of closing a campus in the next school year will take place Tuesday night at .
Budget cuts and shrinking enrollment have cost the district about $10 million over the last four years, and school official anticipate an estimated $1.5 million to $2.7 million in additional reductions for 2012-2013.
Faced with continued budget restrictions and the scheduled reopening of the modernized Lemon Grove Middle School next fall as a STEM magnet school, the district will consider whether another school closure or reconfiguration is necessary to make ends meet.
Currently, the K-8 school district operates seven of its eight schools.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Palm Middle School. The third forum is scheduled for Jan. 18, also at Palm Middle School, and the school board expects to deliver a decision at its Jan. 24 meeting.
