West Chester Area School District holds school closing meetings

    The West Chester School Board Property and Finance Committee has organized a series of meetings to discuss the possibility of closing an elementary school.

    Five meetings will be held through mid-December to look into the viability of the district’s 10 elementary schools and what closing one would mean.

    Patch reportsthe district is considering closing one of the schools to save $1.3 million, though it won’t be the only money-saving option on the table. No closing would take place until the 2016-17 school year.

     

    The first meeting will take place Oct. 31.
