Beallsville HS to remain open for at least one more year

Switzerland of Ohio Board of Ed. votes to keep Monroe County school open

BEALLSVILLE, Ohio -- The Switzerland of Ohio Board of Education decided earlier this week that Beallsville High School will remain open for at least one more year.

Dozens of parents and students on Wednesday attended what Superintendent John Hall called a "board workshop," at which the future of the high school and its more-than 500 students was the focus. Superintendent Hall clarified that the board was not considering closing Beallsville High, but had discussed moving the nearly 200 students enrolled in grades 9-12 to other schools within the district, and keeping students in grade K through 8 at the school.

District parents in attendance said that they felt the Monroe County school was being unfairly targeted, and urged the board not to leave students in limbo as the school year draws to a close.

After more than an hour in executive session, the school board voted to keep Beallsville High open for at least another year, offering students the same curriculum. As part of that decision, the board plans to put a levy on the November ballot. If that levy fails, the issue on what to do with the students at this school will be revisited.
