Study examines OV School’s lapsation options

March 1, 2011

With the fate of Owens Valley School up in the air due to declining enrollment, a recent study has shined some light on options for educating youth in Independence.
A study committee made up of representatives from Lone Pine, Owens Valley and Big Pine school districts released its consolidation study regarding the future of Owens Valley School as it faces lapsation.
Owens Valley School District will lapse if it falls below the state-mandated 12 students.
It currently has 11 kids enrolled.

It only takes a few minutes outside of the car to numb fingers, cheeks and nose and there’s still another 3,000 feet to go up to the first survey spot.
