McCracken approves closure of school

The McCracken County Board of Education granted final approval to their district facilities plan that closes Farley Elementary after the next school year. Starting in the fall, Reidland Middle will open in the newer part of the former Reidland High School. Crews will spend the next year renovating the older part of the building, so 4th and 5th graders can move in for the 2015-16 school year. Farley's K-3 students will go to Reidland Elementary.
