The Winona Area Public School Board is poised to take the next step toward closing an elementary school.

The board will consider tonight a resolution naming a school to be closed and stating when it would close. It also would set times for public hearings on the proposed move, which must be held before board members could vote to shutter the school.

School board president Stacey Mounce-Arnold on Tuesday declined to speculate on which school will be named or whether the resolution will pass, but she said she thought the discussion would focus on Central Elementary School. The board has previously considered consolidating Central and three other elementary schools - Jefferson, Madison, and Washington-Kosciusko.

The idea of closing Central has gained momentum among some board members in recent months. Shutting the school down would save the district nearly $300,000 per year, district officials said in November.

The board meeting is at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Winona City Hall, 207 Lafayette St. Comments from the public are invited after the meeting is called to order and the agenda and minutes have been approved.
