CMS School Superintendent Peter Gorman hinted at his strategy for closing schools in 2011-2012 on Wednesday. Gorman said he wouldn’t necessarily merge underfilled and underperforming schools.

Creating one bigger school with lots of students below grade level would hurt their chances at success, he told the Charlotte Observer. Gorman has said for weeks he expects to close at least 10 schools to save money in 2011-12.
