The RTD is reporting that the School Board has reversed an earlier decision to keep Clark Springs ES open
On a 5-4 vote during a Monday work session, the Richmond School Board agreed to begin a process the prevailing side hopes will lead to the closure of Clark Springs Elementary School, the Adult Career Development Center and the old Norrell Elementary building, which currently houses a pre-school center.
The School Board is considering the closures to make up a more than $1,000,000 shortfall in the budget. If Clark Springs ES is closed, it is expected that the majority of the student body would be merged into John B. Cary ES, a school described as “chronically under-enrolled”. There is a push to rezone the Museum District out of Cary and into either Mumford or Fox schools if Clark Springs is closed and merged into Cary.
