GLASTONBURY, CT (WFSB) -

School leaders in Glastonbury are trying to decide whether or not to consolidate schools in town.

A Board of Education meeting was held on Monday night to discuss the matter.

However, members said they voted to wait to make that decision. They want to take a closer look dropping student enrollment and see if the trend continues.

"I'm going to recommend that we review this thing in the next few months [and] figure out the right way to go about it," said board member Jeremy Grieveson. "[We should] put together a task force and go from there."

If enrollment numbers continue to dip too far, officials said the town could eventually close one or two buildings.
