Martin, KY school board votes to close Sheldon Clark High school


Hundreds of students, parents, and teachers filled the Inez Middle school gym for the school board meeting Thursday evening.

There they voiced their opinions about the board's proposal to close Sheldon Clark High school and move students to other schools.

Teachers say the school is not up to standards and local blasting has damaged the school.

Board members voted unanimously to close the school and move high school students to Inez Middle, and have those students join others at Warfield middle about ten miles away.

Some folks say their children's safety is their main concern while others say moving special needs students to a different middle school will be a financial burden on their families.
