The Souderton Area School Board Operations Committee Has Recommended Closing Lower Salford Elementary School.
Board Member Matt Holliday, who has a child at the school, says it’s a choice between closing a building or cutting educational programs.
“I think it’s important, whether it be my kids or any kids within the district, to have those programs longer term.”
Administrators say the closure is needed because of declining enrollment and rising costs. The school board will vote on it at its September 27 meeting, and a public hearing will probably be held in late November.
