Greenwich Public Schools announced that New Lebanon School's (NLS) Kindergarten will be held at the Byram Archibald Neighborhood Center (BANC) for at least the 2014-2015 school year. NLS Kindergarten students will begin each school day at BANC for their academic classes and will then take a school bus to NLS for the second half of their day for lunch, recess and specials (FLES, art, music, physical education and media).
This temporary solution aims to ensure that current NLS Kindergarten through 4th Grade students maintain their elementary school experience at NLS. It will also free up three classrooms to address the enrollment needs for Grades 1-5 in the coming school year. NLS has 14 classrooms and the projected enrollment for 2014-2015 will require 16 classrooms. After nine years of declining enrollment, NLS has experienced increasing enrollment since 2010 and enrollment is projected to continue through 2016.
The below chart provides an overview of a number of considerations and solutions that have been developed for implementing this plan.
