If it becomes necessary to close a school, the following procedures will be followed:
1. Upon determining that a school should be closed, the Board will direct the superintendent
to inform the staff members involved and review with them their rights of transfer to other
locations. They will be assisted in obtaining mutually satisfactory assignments.
2. The Board will also instruct the superintendent to notify by letter the parents of students
attending the school, informing them of the reason the action is being taken and of the new
arrangements for school attendance by their children.
3. To ensure the smoothest possible transition, the Board will direct that the school scheduled
for nonoperation the following year be closed as of the end of the regular school year unless
emergency conditions dictate otherwise.
4. If emergency conditions dictate that a school be closed during the regular school year, the
Board will allow the superintendent a period to execute the Board's order. The
superintendent will use this period to work with parents, teachers and administrators in the
sending and receiving schools to prepare children for the change.
