BRIDGEPORT - Another Bridgeport elementary school is on the chopping block.

Citing financial concerns, school officials say they may close Roosevelt Elementary School. Officials have already said they may shut Dunbar Elementary School.

Bridgeport schools are facing a $19-million budget hole and closing the two schools will save the district about $3 million.

Shutting the schools will force hundreds of students to be separated and sent to other schools throughout the city.

District Superintendent Dr. John Ramos says he is considering a variety of possibilities to keep the schools open, including cutting art, library and gym classes. He also plans on removing assistant principals from other schools.

The Board of Education is not expected to vote on the budget until June 21.
