CHARLOTTETOWN A news report says 11 small schools on P.E.I. are slated for closure in a move expected to save the Eastern School District about $2 million a year.

The Charlottetown Guardian reports the plan will be released officially on Wednesday by the school district.

Enrolment has dropped by 33 per cent in the provinces eastern region in the last five years.

The school board plan is expected to mirror a report released in 1996, advocating the closure of about eight small schools.
