Board president presents "outside the box" options for Harrisburg High School
HARRISBURG, Ill.- The plans for a new high school building came to a screeching halt in April, but school board president Scott Berry said the lifespan of the current building is still coming to an end, too.
The first option listed is to deactivate the high school and change the district into a K-8 district. Berry said 8th grade graduates would receive a "tuition voucher" to attend the high school of their choice. He added that the option would be a "tremendous tax saver to residents and could happen before 2016.
The district superintendent said the board would have to approve the ideas before they went into effect.
