Dist. 17 to shutter a building?
Enrollment drops could precipitate such discussions
CHANNAHON — The Channahon Dist. 17 school board could begin discussions soon on whether to close up one of the district’s four schools.
Superintendent Dr. Karin Evans brought up the possibility. Enrollment numbers have been decreasing for a few years and are expected to continue to decline for the immediate future. Kindergarten enrollment is at 98 now, Evans said, which is the lowest in years.
Several possibilities were considered, such as keeping all four schools open, closing Pioneer Path and housing Early Learners through fourth grade in N.B. Galloway School, or housing Early Learners through third grade at Galloway and adding one more grade to Three Rivers School.
