Declining enrollment may force Durham school closure


DURHAM, Conn. (WTNH) — Declining enrollment is the reason a Durham Elementary School may have to close at the end of the school year.

Dozens showed up at an informational meeting Tuesday night to ask questions, and to try to save Korn School from closing. For the past five years, a committee has been looking at the numbers and is asking that the Board of Education support their recommendation because there aren’t enough students enrolling in elementary schools.

The Board of Education will vote on the school’s future later this month. They say that closing Korn could save the district over $500,000 per year.
