By Shaina Stockton

INDEPENDENCE — In a statement on social media to parents on Wednesday evening, Schools Superintendent Kelly Wilmore announced that their budget’s shortfall for the 2018-19 school year, in addition to other factors, has led the schools to consider one of three options, the most probable of the three being to close Baywood Elementary School before the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.
The other proposed options were to close Fairview Elementary School, or to cut seven positions and seven programs at the Career and Technical Education (CATE) Center.
