A Springfield school board member says he’s not sure why two schools in his subdistrict have been targeted for closure, but he intends to find out. Scott McFarland represents Subdistrict 3, where both Pleasant Hill and Wanless schools are located.
Parents from both schools were notified Thursday that District 186 will consider a plan to close both schools… and transport students to the Feitshans building.
McFarland says Pleasant Hill is in poor shape and inaccessible for those with disabilities, so it may make sense to close it… but he says he’s not sold on shuttering Wanless. The school board will consider the proposal next month.
