Board Votes Not to Close School in SAD 37 

School board members in SAD 37 have voted not to close any more schools in the district, at least not now. Last year the board decided to shut two schools in Cherryfield and Columbia Falls. But a few months later, folks in Cherryfield voted to keep their school open. Since then, long-range planning committee recommending another school be closed to help the district save money. Superintendent David Beal says the board of directors rejected that idea last night. Beal says he’s not sure that’s the final word, though, and the issue of a closing a school could come up again in the next few months.
