Board Expected To Vote 2/15 On Closing Brandon Middle School

A proposal that’s on the table in the Rosendale-Brandon school district, closing a middle school, brought a large contingent of parents out Monday night . The proposal would combine the middle school in Brandon with one in Rosendale, which a great many parents object to. District officials point to an expected drop in enrollment of 30% over the next four years, as well as close to $70,000 in cost savings, as the main motivators behind the proposal. There was no action taken at the Monday night meeting, but the board is expected to vote at their next meeting on February 15.
