Sachem S.D. proposes school closures to fix budget

Sachem School District officials hosted parents at a meeting Wednesday night to discuss the possible closure of some schools.



The closures would help the district close a large budget gap, district officials say.



They offered several plans which would close different schools or move entire grades into other buildings.



Parents say it's heartbreaking.



One school eyed for closing is Seneca Middle School.
