The appellants seek reversal of a decision made by the Oelwein Community School District to close the elementary school in Hazelton.
The board voted to close the elementary school due to financial difficulties and declining enrollment. There was nothing in the record to show the decision was not educationally and economically sound.
The appellants contest the procedure used by the district in reaching its decision and the lack of public input. The district did not violate the spirit of open, public, informed decision-making.
The local board's decision is affirmed.
