The Alameda Unified School District is considering consolidation plan that would create "mega schools" of up to 1,000 students from kindergarten through sixth grade. The goal is to find a new way to deal with the district's massive budget gap.
Even with the consolidation and closures the district says it could still be short up to $12 million over the next two years.
Thursday's hearing will be held at Lincoln Middle School at 6:30 p.m.
A final vote by the board on the proposals is scheduled on Dec 14.
