A few hundred Wabash County citizens gathered at Northfield and Southwood high schools Monday and Wednesday nights, Aug. 15 and Aug. 17, for the MSD of Wabash County public forums.
MSD students and parents joined Wabash County taxpayers, local community leaders and other concerned citizens at the two-day event. Many prepared questions and comments for the MSD School Board about its plans to combat declining enrollment.
The two forums were created to answer questions about the Board’s initial decision to reconfigure Northfield and Southwood high schools into one school and close Sharp Creek Elementary in the 2017-2018 school year.
