Closing foes plan charter school in Dugger

Opponents of closing a small Sullivan County town’s high school and elementary school are working on plans to keep them open as charter schools.

Tom Peeler of the Union Dugger Community School group says it has filed paperwork with the state education department to take over the school buildings in the 900-person town of Dugger.

The move comes after the Northeast Sullivan School Board voted last month to close the 172-student Union Junior-Senior High School and Dugger Elementary at the end of this school year because of budget troubles and enrollment declines.

Northeast Sullivan Superintendent Mark Baker tells the Greene County Daily World the district will follow state law that requires vacant school buildings be offered to charter schools for $1 annual leases.
