Close Independence High School to save money? Probably not.

First it was the threat to split Mint Hill into several different high schools in the redistricting for the new Rocky River High School. This time, CMS is talking about closing Independence High School and moving the students to Rocky River. WBTV is reporting there is not enough support on the Board of Education to do this. Board member Tim Morgan said tonight in an e-mail that as far as he knows, Kaye McGarry is the only one supporting the closing of Independence. North Meck was also mentioned as a school that could possibly close.
