Carter County BOE votes not to close any schools after reviewing cost savings study that recommends consolidation
Carter County school leaders have voted not to close any schools through at least the next academic year.
A vote on the matter comes following a cost study conducted by a former state education official that suggests declining enrollment along with declining state funding recommended closing five schools over a three year period to save on costs, which would’ve started with closing Little Milligan and Keenburg Elementary.
The board intensely discussed the study during their board meeting Thursday night, but moved not to move forward with any action of consolidation. To watch the board of education meeting from Thursday night, click here.
