Lynn Schools taking steps to reduce pre-K overcrowding

LYNN — Lynn Public Schools administrators are taking steps to reduce overcrowding at the pre-kindergarten level. 

Superintendent Dr. Patrick Tutwiler announced to the School Committee Thursday night that the district has an opportunity to rent five classrooms on the third floor of the Lynn YMCA to house some of its pre-K students. Those rooms are currently vacant during the school year, he said. 

The plan, which would cost $9,500 for the school year, would provide immediate relief for two pre-K classrooms at Lynn Vocational Technical Institute and would allow the district to plan its pre-K reorganization further, Tutwiler said. 

The proposal will be presented and potentially voted on during the School Committee Building and Grounds subcommittee meeting on Sept. 26. If approved, it would advance to the full committee for a vote later that evening.
