|Local Board of Education makes first step to eliminate School of Choice|
The future of three Christian County Public Schools remains up in the air after the Christian County Board of Education met tonight.
Chairman Cornelius says no action was taken tonight concerning the status of Belmont Elementary School, Lacy Elementary School and North Drive Middle School.
In other business, the school board unanimously passed the first reading to eliminate school of choice for the 2013-14 school year as stated by Chairman Cornelius.
School board members decided to keep the Highland Elementary School building after learning it would take about $ 3 million dollars to demolish it.
Board members also approved to draw up specifics and then send out bids for the purchase of two 8-passenger vans for a total cost of $60,000.
Hundreds of parents with children attending Lacy, Belmont Elementary Schools and North Drive Middle School once again attended the school board meeting to voice their concerns about the future of the three schools.
