RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ridgefield School District will redistrict its six elementary schools and evenly split students into the two middle schools in September, according to a story in The Ridgefield Press.

The decision means the district will not close Scotland Elementary, which had previously been discussed, according to the story. Scotland fifth-graders will join students from Barlow Mountain and Ridgebury at Scotts Ridge. Students at Branchville, Farmingville and Veterans Park will go to East Ridge.

The redistricing allows the district to operate under the state's 2.5 percent spending cap, the story said, and result in the elimination of three middle school teachers.The move affects 47 fifth-grade students.

The budget presented by Superintendent Karen Baldwin calls for a 3.48 percent increase. A public hearing on the proposed school budget will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25 at Scotts Ridge Middle School. Click here for the Ridgefield Press story.
