School system Superintendent Dallas Dance recommended the closure of Eastwood Elementary School in Dundalk at a Tuesday night Board of Education meeting
As part of the recommendation, Eastwood, Norwood Elementary School and Holabird Middle school will operate as one K-8 school on the Norwood and Holabird campuses.
The closure of the Eastwood facility is part of a larger plan by County Executive Kevin Kamenetz to sell property to construct new county buildings. The Eastwood property may be used for a new police precinct.
A public hearing on the consolidation is scheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 12 at Dundalk High School.
The Board of Education will vote on the matter in March.
