Buena Vista considers consolidation of two elementary schools and middle school

By Zach England

Buena Vista School Superintendent John Keeler wants public input on how to proceed with the proposed consolidation of three schools, which could cost between $12 million and $23 million.

Keeler says the project could eventually save the district money from decreased maintenance, buses and administration if some operations were combined.

The schools are: Parry McCluer Middle School, which is nearly 100 years old, and F.W. Kling and Enderly Heights Elementary Schools, which were built in the 1960s and 1970s.
