Schools Prepare to Close

Montgomery,Alabama – Montgomery Public Schools officials are beginning the work of moving students and teachers from three local schools after voting to close them because of budget problems.

At the end of the school year, over -700- students from Hayneville Road, Paterson, and Pintala elementary will be moved to neighboring schools. More than 100 employees will be moved to positions that are available in surrounding schools.

Even with the closing of these Montgomery County schools, the district also faces possible layoffs as it deals with a projected 28 million dollar shortfall next fiscal year.
