Calhoun County School Board meeting draws crowd

CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Changes may be coming to schools in Calhoun County.

It was standing room only at Thursday's Calhoun County School Board meeting.

Before Hurricane Michael, the school board had a study done to find out how the district is doing financially.

There's now talk of possibly relocating or consolidating campuses to reduce expenses.

The public had the opportunity to make comments at Thursday's meeting.

Officials said they want to make the best decision for students.

"I have confidence in our staff and I have confidence in our leadership of the school district. We will find ways to address the concerns," Superintendent of Schools Ralph Yoder said. "We will find ways to have a long-term positive impact for our students and the staff in our school district."

No recommendations have been made.

A town hall meeting will be held next Tuesday in the Blountstown Middle School auditorium at 5 p.m.
