2 Western South Dakota Schools To Close Next Year

The school board in western South Dakota's Custer County has voted to close two schools.

The Custer County School Board voted 4-3 to close the Spring Creek and Fairburn schools after this school year. Supporters say it will save the county about $130,000 annually, but opponents say it'll mean longer commutes for some students to Hermosa and Custer. 

Board member Larry Vickers resigned and left the meeting following the Monday night vote.
