Flint, Mich.

The school board at Flint Community Schools District held its annual organizational meeting on Wednesday at Southwestern Classical Academy in Flint.

Officials did not talk about the possible reorganization should Northwestern High School close.

As NBC 25/FOX 66 News previously reported in December 2017, the board voted to begin the process of closing Northwestern High School. It is up to the superintendent to come up with a plan to repurpose the school and move students and staff.

At Wednesday night's meeting, the school board and the spokesperson would not elaborate on what the possible closure could mean for students.

They also refused to comment on published reports that the closed Walter E. Scott Elementary School would reopen next year. It closed back in 2015.

If Northwestern closes, only one high school would remain in the district. Some parents say they worry about overcrowding.

We're told another school board meeting will be held on February 6th, but it unclear if officials will discuss either of the two schools.

We did receive a statement from the district. It did not specifically address our questions about either school but says "The Flint Community Schools Board of Education and Superintendent are working collaboratively to develop a plan that will assess the future of Northwestern and Scott School and any other program changes for the 2018-19 school year."
