NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Declining enrollment could lead to the closure of one elementary school in Newport.

School officials say closing Mildred Dean Elementary is just one change that they will recommend for next school year.

Other changes include creating a school for preschool through 3rd grades, one for 4th, 5th and 6th, a middle school for 7th, 8th and 9th grades, and a high school for 10th, 11th and 12th grades.

Mildred Dean would then close. The school board will hear the recommendation at a board meeting later this month.
