The Camden Central School District Board of Education will vote tonight on whether or not to close Annsville Elementary School in Taberg at the end of this school year.
The superintendent says 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 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.
The Board of Education will meet tonight at 7 p.m.
