It is no secret that the Hazleton Area School District suffers from severe capacity issues in it's classrooms. This has led the district to make cuts in order to provide more classroom space.
While construction still continues on Phase I of the District-wide pan to address capacity by converting pools at four elementary schools into classrooms is still underway, the Hazleton Area School District is working to move ahead with Phase IA which will address capacity issues by converting libraries into classroom space.
Phase IA has two options. Option 1 will maintain the library program by cutting library space in half and having half of a library and one additional classroom. Option 2 will eliminate the library program by creating two additional classrooms where libraries currently exist.
A PDF dated April 4th but dated today shows the proposed changes to Hazleton Area Schools.
