UPDATE: Chippewa County Elementary to Close

Posted: Updated:

We have an update for you this morning on the possible closure of a Chippewa County elementary school.

In a 6-1 vote, the school board has decided to close down the school Turner-Howson Elementary school in Rudyard.

Due to low student enrollment the board concluded the students will be able to fit into one K-12 building and this will save around $100,000 a year.

To upgrade the school it would cost about $1 million.
