Reconfiguration

Elementary school reconfiguration underway

When elementary students return to school in September 2017, they will begin a new era in the Gloversville Enlarged School District as it shifts from five neighborhood schools to a new model that includes neighborhood schools and grade-level grouping.

As part of the transition:
● All students and teachers who would have been at Meco are moving to Kingsborough.
● All students who would have attended McNab will go to Boulevard.
● McNab teachers are moving to Boulevard, with the exception of McNab’s second grade teachers, who are moving to Kingsborough.
● Kindergarteners and first-graders who attended Boulevard will go to Park Terrace.
● Shuttle buses will be available to transport elementary students to their assigned schools.

Where will students attend school?

Under the hybrid model, the district will create two pre-kindergarten through second grade primary schools at the current Kingsborough and Park Terrace buildings and establish a grade 3-5 intermediate school at Boulevard. The current McNab building will house early education and special education programs, and the district will seek other uses for the current Meco school. click here to view an infographic explaining the changes
