Schenenvus and Worcester school districts have applied for a state grant that would allow them to study the positive and negative effects of a merger between the two.

The Otesego County districts have been in talks to merge, citing class sizes as a top research item for the study. Schenevus’ has roughly 360 students, and Worcester’s has about 330.

"Building size, classroom size, the amount of kids at each grade level facility, so all those things would kind of be hashed out in the study and then we would make a decision of whether it made sense, both communities would look at it and say does it make sense to go together or does it make sense to stay separate," said Tim Gonzalez, Worcester superintendent. 

The districts expect to hear about a decision on the grant in December or January.
