District considers closing school
Residents want more information on money-saving alternatives
THOMSON – Facing declining enrollment and reduced state aid, officials at West Carroll School District, which has schools in Mount Carroll, Savanna and Thomson, are discussing whether to close West Carroll Intermediate School.
Thomson residents attended a public meeting in the gym Wednesday to voice concerns about closing the building, which is used as a district office and also houses preschool and some special education programs.
Board President Mike Highland said the district has lost 255 students since its inception, and closing the building could save between $167,000 and $200,000.
