Schenevus/Worcester, N.Y. -- It was standing room only at the Schenevus Central School. On the docket, were talks of the possible merger between the Schenevus and Worcester School Districts. 

The Schenevus Superintendent is urging her support for the merger. 

AllOtsego says when thinking about the future of the school district, Schenevus Superintendent Theresa Carlin, is presenting three options. Those options include either: merging, tuitioning-out, or dissolving all together. 

In October 2019, NEWSChannel 2 reported how small class sizes in the two districts are a top reason for a merger study. 

Schenevus has roughly 360 students, and Worcester has about 330 students. 

The schools must now wait until January 2020. 

AllOtsego says that's when the district's might be awarded a $25,000 state grant for a merger study. 

If approved, the study would start in February 2020, and last for about nine months. But the merger itself could take as long as two years. Both school boards and both communities would have to vote on the final measure.
