The second part of the financial recovery plan for the Birmingham City School System is to be presented to the Birmingham Board of Education at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The plan calls for consolidating and reconfiguring schools across the district:

Carver and Woodlawn high schools would add seventh and eighth grades in a school-with-a-school model. Students in the seventh and eighth grades would be in separate areas of the schools with separate staffs and administrations.

Center Street Middle School would close, with students moving to Arrington Middle School and Carver.

 Councill Elementary School would consolidate with Bush Middle School to create a K-8 school.

Daniel Payne Middle School would close, with sixth-graders moving to South Hampton Elementary School and seventh- and eighth-graders going to Carver.

Hemphill Elementary School would close, with students moving to Jackson Elementary School and West End Academy.

Norwood Elementary School would close, and students would attend Phillips Academy.

Putnam Middle School would close, and students would move to Ossie Ware Mitchell Middle School and Woodlawn.

North Roebuck Elementary School would close and relocate to the Martha Gaskins Middle School building. Martha Gaskins students would go to Smith and Ossie Ware Mitchell middle schools.

Avondale Elementary School, Barrett Elementary School, Hayes K-8 School, Hudson K-8 School, Inglenook K-8 School, Oliver Elementary School and South Hampton Elementary School would become K-6 schools.

The new Oxmoor K-8 School would open this summer as a K-5 school.

Kennedy Alternative School would be closed and the program would be moved to the Daniel Payne Middle School building.

The proposal also includes a reduction in force, which would result in the loss of 133 positions across the district, 108 in schools and 30 in central offices. Those positions in schools would include 15 Child Nutrition Program workers, 10 teacher assistants, 17 clerical workers, two bookkeepers, 13 custodians, 15 teachers, seven principals, 15 assistant principals, seven counselors and seven library media personnel.

Central office positions that would be eliminated would include four program specialists, three clerical workers, one bookkeeper, five custodians, three data entry technicians, one director/assistant director and eight maintenance employees.

The total savings projection from the plan totals $8,018,786.21.
