Olean schools may close buildings by next school year
In two weeks, the Olean Board of Education is expected to vote whether or not it will close any buildings. Last night, the Finance Committee discussed the matter. They focused on two options…closing just two schools or close all four elementary buildings. The district is wrestling with a $3 million funding gap. Board member Mike Martello said they’d rather get rid of buildings than programs.
