Greenwich Sets Spanish-Language School Meeting
GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) _ Greenwich has scheduled a Spanish-language forum to discuss the use of a school building and racial balance.
The Greenwich Time reports (http://bit.ly/17I6tWh ) that an English translation will be available at the Tuesday forum at Hamilton Avenue School.
Hamilton Avenue and New Lebanon schools are designated by the state Department of Education as racially unbalanced because the minority student population at the schools exceeds the district’s minority average by more than 25 percentage points.
The district must come up with a plan to address the disparities. The plan will need approval from the state Board of Education.
Hamilton Avenue and New Lebanon schools have minority student populations totaling about 70 percent, compared with a district minority average of about one-third.
