Batesville School District Restructuring


Last night saw the first of two public meetings on a plan to restructure the Batesville School District.

Several families attended and showed concern about where their children may attend school in the future.

The district is planning to shut down the Cushman Alternative School and the Pre-K building saving $200,000.

The biggest concern though, was with the possible closure of Central Magnet Math and Science Elementary School and moving the students from there to the three other elementary schools in the district.

Batesville Superintendent Michael Hester stressed none of the restructuring plans have been finalized.

The district will hold another meeting in December where Hester plans to present two restructuring options.
