Erie Public Schools could see a lot of change in the future. The district proposed three options Monday night for phase three of its master plan to optimize and improve all the schools. Option A is estimated at just over 300 million dollars. It keeps all high schools and closes half of Central Tech. All elementary and middle schools will combine into K-8 schools with separate entrances. Schools that would close include Irving, Emerson Gridley, Wayne, Wilson, and Burton. Option B is estimated at three hundred and six million dollars. This option transforms east high school into a K-8 school, moves Collegiate academy in with central tech and takes the east students to Collegiate facility. Schools that may close include Perry, Emerson Gridley, Edison, Wayne, Wilson, and Burton. Option C comes in at just over two hundred and seventy-one million dollars. This option converts collegiate academy into a k-8 school. Central tech and collegiate combine and schools that close include Jefferson, Perry, Irving, Emerson Gridley, Wayne, Wilson, Lincoln, Burton.
