Parents in Whitbourne are disappointed after the English School Board voted once again to close the local elementary school.
The parents contend the board of trustees acted on “outdated and erroneous data.” Whitbourne Elementary is now scheduled to close in June 2017. A previous vote to close the school in 2016 was overturned by the courts. The parents committee plans to continue its fight to save the school.
“The school community marks this day as a new beginning of a nine-month process to overturn this decision,” the committee said in a news release. “The committee will be consulting with its legal counsel to begin planning our next course of action.”
