It's something we're seeing in districts across Erie County, the possibility of closing schools.
Dr. Doris Gernovich, president of the Corry School Board, said it's her district's turn to deal with it.
"Especially in this area, we've had a declining enrollment in all schools around."
So now, the board is looking into closing Spartansburg and Conelway elementary schools, and reconfiguring the remaining buildings. They say it'll save about 14 million dollars over 20 years.
On Tuesday, the public had a chance to weigh in on that possibility during a public hearing.
Jamie Gilson has three kids in the district, and if the plan goes through they'd all be in different buildings. Gilson said if that happens, she'll move them out of the district.
"Twenty minutes doesn't seem that far, but it is when you try to get there after school, after work. I live in Spartansburg, I work in Spartansburg. It's just where I want to be. My 4th grader forgot her shoes and flute today, I want to be able to run those things to her on my lunch break if she needs them."
Martie Lee has an interesting perspective on this. She's former school board member, and knows what it's like to be the one having to make the hard decisions. She recalled a time she sat there, she had to cut baseball in order to keep buildings open.
"I hope they study the research out there because the research shows that this is not good for education."
"It's a very sad time for many organizations and many townships, but I think it's going to work if this goes through," said Dr. Gernovich.
That final decision does not have to come until March 2014.
