To close (a school) or not?
PRINCETON — Two concerned parents have asked the Princeton Elementary School board to look for other cost-saving options rather than closing Reagan Middle School in Tiskilwa.
At this week’s board meeting, Kelly Eiken of Tiskilwa said she took her children out of private school a year ago with the intent that they would go to Reagan School, since they live across from the school. If transportation costs are the issue, as presented at earlier PES Board meetings, then the board should look at transportation itself, not at closing a school. Things to consider would be the number of pick-up times at Reagan and also a waiver system, she said.
Closing Reagan is a big concern for the community of Tiskilwa, Eiken said, adding the school does bring people and businesses into town.
