One of the biggest issues is declining enrollment and how that affects the use of facilities and state funding.

For this first time, enrollment dropped below 14,000 students this year which will cause a loss of $1.4 million in state funding this year.

The plan is expected to include the closing of three elementary schools and moving the alternative education programs at McLean School.

The School Board meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. at the administration building at 7th and Wabash.
