A second forum for West Seneca Central School parents designed to continue providing “updated information regarding the proposed reconfiguration of middle schools and relocation of current East Elementary students” is scheduled to be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the auditorium at West Middle School, 395 Center Road.

This meeting, which follows a Jan. 17 public presentation by the district at East middle about the proposal to switch the middle schools to grades 6-8, is designed to provide parents another opportunity to learn about the district’s plans.

School officials noted that the district’s regular board of education meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Monday in the second-floor administration board room at West Elementary School, 1397 Orchard Park Road, will not consist of discussion about the reconfiguration.
