The Ferndale School District has scheduled a forum for Tuesday, Jan. 24, to hear from the community about the district’s plan to close one elementary school to save money during a poor economy.
The district’s Facility Advisory Committee is holding the forum from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Eagleridge Elementary School, 2651 Thornton Road.
The district’s board of directors voted Nov. 22 to close an elementary school at the end of the 2012-2013 school year.
But the board hasn’t yet decided which school to close.
Factors such as location, size and the condition of the building will factor into the board’s decision, district officials said.
