2 Western South Dakota Schools To Close Next Year

CUSTER COUNTY, SD

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.
