G-R School Board votes to close Gladbrook building

GLADBROOK (KWWL) -

In a five to two vote, the Gladbrook-Reinbeck school district voted to close the elementary/middle school building in Gladbrook.

Superintendent Shawn Holloway says a decade of declining enrollment has forced them to look at money saving options.

Wednesday night, the board voted to close the building, in hopes of saving more than $400,000 for the district.

Kindergarten through sixth grade will be housed at the Reinbeck elementary, while seven through 12th grade will be at the high school building.
