School officials in Monroe County are considering closing two schools in response to falling student enrollment.

The Pocono Mountain School District administration has proposed a reorganization plan that includes closing the Barrett and Pocono Elementary Centers.

Students from these schools would be relocated to the Swiftwater Elementary Center and the Swiftwater Intermediate School which would reopen.

A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for February 25th at Pocono Mountain East High School.
