You may have heard talk that the Dothan City School Board is looking into consolidating high schools and closing a few middle schools. Well at Mondays school board meeting, members said that was not true. The special meeting was called to clear up the rumors that have been circulating around town that the board wanted to combine Dothan and Northveiw High and restructure grade levels. The board said it has made no such plans and that it only instructed the superintendent to conduct a Feasibility Study to look into the financial and educational impact of consolidating schools. The board says after it receives the results of the study it will weigh the pros and cons of its potential effects, but does not foresee the closing of and schools next year. The study is only being done because of the potential devastating state cuts to the education budget for next year.
