The Stroudsburg Area School District is weighing options to better use space and money.

In a meeting Wednesday night, Superintendent John Toleno presented scenarios to the school board including closing a few elementary schools.

Toleno says there are more than a dozen open rooms in the middle school that houses fifth through seventh grade. Fourth grade could be moved into the building.

He says once plans are narrowed down he can work on cost saving and redistricting.

The next meeting is January 23.
