CAMDEN, N.Y. - The Camden Central School District Board of Education voted Tuesday evening in favor of closing Annsville Elementary School in Taberg.
The school will officially close at the end of the year. School officials say they will then begin to market and sell the building.
In previous interviews with WKTV the superintendent said that by closing the school, the district would save about $800,000. This would mean that all pre-K students would attend McConnellsville Elementary School, leaving McConnellsville and Camden as the district’s only elementary schools.
About 150 students currently attend Annsville Elementary School. Enrollment has declined in recent years to just over 2,000 students district-wide in grades K-12.
North Bay Elementary School within the Camden CSD closed at the end of the 2013-14 school year due to a decline in enrollment at that time.
Six board members voted in favor of closing the school. One member abstained from voting.
