The Oklahoma City Public Schools board has approved two measures to consolidate schools in the district.

The board voted Monday night in favor of consolidating Greystone Lower and Greystone Upper elementary schools and to consolidate Kaiser East into Kaiser elementary schools. 

The consolidation of the two Greystone schools will have an annual savings of $163,000 per year and another $55,000 if the building housing Greystone Lower Elementary is sold, according to the district. 

As for the savings for consolidating the Kaiser schools, the district said the savings will be $38,000 in custodial and $67,000 in total and utilities.
