The Hopatcong Board of Education has unanimously voted to close the Hudson Maxim School at the end of this school year and reconfigure the school district after having over $600,000 cut from their state aid. The news follows a series of public meetings held by Superintendent Art DiBenedetto.
In the fall, preschoolers, kindergartners, and first-graders will start at the Durban Avenue School, fourth through seventh-graders will go to Hopatcong Middle School and eighth graders will be at Hopatcong High School. Second and third-graders will remain at Tulsa Trail School.
Closing the Hudson Maxim School will reportedly save the district about $500,000 and any proceeds from the sale will be placed in reserve and used to upgrade the high school.
