Lodi Unified School District trustees will discuss the possibility of closing Tokay Colony Elementary School and sending children to either Live Oak or Lockeford elementary schools.
Tokay Colony, located on East Live Oak Road near Jack Tone Road, has 77 or 78 students from kindergarten through sixth grade, said Principal Erin Clark, who also spends time as head of nearby Live Oak Elementary. Tokay Colony has only five kindergarten students and five first-graders, Clark said.
“It’s unfortunate for the community,” Clark said.
The Lodi Unified school board will discuss the school’s declining enrollment at tonight’s board meeting.
In other action, district trustees will hear a report on the district’s Accountability Progress Report, Standardized Testing and Reporting Program and the California High School Exit Exam.
The board will also discuss the cost of teacher staffing for fourth through 12th grades and be recognized by the American Heart Association.
Today’s meeting, open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. at the James Areida Education Support Center, 1305 E. Vine St., Lodi.
