Owens Valley School facing closure?

October 5, 2010

Thanks to recent changes in programs and administration, Superintendent of Schools Terry McAteer told the Board of Supervisors that Inyo County’s schools are in good shape despite financial challenges and declining enrollment that is threatening one school.
Owens Valley High School, with only 11 students this year, may be facing closure due to a lack of enrollment.
“We all have declining enrollment, but the Owens Valley High School is nearing lapsation. If it goes into lapsation, it will face disposal of school territory and property,” McAteer said.
