Lacy Elementary in Hopkinsville will remain open for now.
The Christian County Board of Education voted 3-2 at a meeting Tuesday night in favor of keeping the school open. Lacy's closure would have been the first phase of a redistricting plan that would see four different Christian County elementary schools closed and bundled together.
Five of six Christian County School Board redistricting plans include closing Lacy Elementary School. The proposals discussed at a school board meeting last night aim to control facility costs while attempting to zone students closer to their homes.
Superintendent Mary Ann Gemmill said that the board did not vote on the proposal and redistricting discussions are not included in the board's next meeting agenda. Communications director Heather Aubin said the proposals include closing one to four elementary schools including Lacy, Belmont, Indian Hills and Holiday and restructuring middle schools.
