STINESVILLE, Ind. -- The board of the Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corporation will vote on Monday night whether to close Stinesville Elementary School for good.
The school, which has been opened in some form or fashion since it was built in 1936, has seen a steady decline in enrollment over the past several years, according to Superintendent Mike Wilcox.
Only 148 students are currently enrolled.
Students from the school would be moved to Edgewood Primary and Intermediate schools.
According to Wilcox, closing the elementary school would save the district $600,000 in the first year. He said keeping the school open has become a financial drain and it would cost nearly $8 million to renovate it.
The school board will take a final vote on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Edgewood High School in Ellettsville.
