Architect Recommends Closing Celestine Elementary

Jasper (NNDC):

The public offered few comments Monday night after George Link with VPS Architecture of Evansville presented a draft recommendation for the school board, which included closing Celestine Elementary after the 2019-20 school year.

A public group of about 70 people gathered in the cafeteria at Northeast Dubois High School for the last community meeting in Link’s study to hear the recommendations.  They include renovations to the high school and middle school in the near future and the eventual closure of Celestine Elementary.  After Link’s presentation, only a handful of  the public offered comments, and the meeting concluded after about an hour and a half, much shorter than the previous meetings..

The recommendations do still require school board approval, and will be presented to the board at its monthly meeting, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the corporation office, 5379 Main St., Dubois. The meeting is open to the public. Details will be forthcoming from NNDC.
