West Shore considering middle school closure

Officials in the West Shore School District are considering closing one of the district's middle schools.

A district committee has recommended closing either Lemoyne or New Cumberland Middle School. The move would mean more students in Allen and Crossroads Middle Schools.

The proposal comes as the school board works on a budget for next year. A public hearing on the issue is scheduled for next Wednesday night at 6 p.m at Cedar Cliff High School.

A district spokesman said a final decision could come in April.
