As population matures or shifts within the school district, certain school buildings or classrooms may be removed from the education mainstream and directed to other uses. Efficiency in educational process may also require the altering of grade alignment.

Factors to be considered in determining which facility/facilities to be retired without adversely affecting educational quality shall include, but not be limited to, educational flexibility, geography, general condition of the building, size and adaptability of remaining facilities, operating costs and pupil capacity.

Specific criteria shall be established to support any particular school closing and will be published sufficiently in advance of action to allow for public comment.

Final decision concerning the utilization of all school buildings and facilities is the responsibility of the Board.
