The appellants seek reversal of a decision made by the Charles City Community School District to close an elementary school.
The records shows the board made the decision appropriate deliberation and was not arbitrary or capricious. Nothing was established to prove the elementary bus routes would exceed the 60-minute limit if the school was closed.
The underlying question is whether representations made by members of the former board without being reduced to writing or contained in a proposition submitted to the voters can bind the present board. The decision is that more than oral representations is required to bind future boards.
The local board's decision is upheld.
