Board Allows Rural SD School To Remain Open

November 16, 2011, 5:55 AM

CUSTER, SD - A rural western South Dakota elementary school with just six students will be allowed to remain open for at least one more year.

The Custer Board of Education withdrew a motion Monday to close Spring Creek Elementary after a board member agreed to chair a special committee that will explore alternative ways to fund the school's operating costs.

Custer school officials cut more than $840,000 from the budget for the 2012 school year after the state Legislature slashed education funding.

Officials say the district spent $69,663 to keep Spring Creek open last year.

Melissa Whitney has a kindergartener enrolled at Spring Creek. She called the board's decision a victory and says she expects enrollment to grow in the future.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The third paragraph was clarified that the cuts were made for this school year.
