Passionate Plea Heard in Bern: Save Our School

A passionate, and sometimes emotional evening in Bern, where a public hearing was held Monday night, focused on the possibility of closing the Bern school.
It was a packed gymnasium, at the Bern Attendance Center, where patrons and students, along with business and community leaders gathered to provide input to the Prairie Hills USD 113 Board of Education regarding the proposed closure.                                                                                                                                     By the time the session came to a close, over two hours after it began, nearly 25 voices had been heard-and everyone that spoke was in opposition to the potential school closing.
School officials cite enrollment numbers, finances and aging facilities among reasons for considering the closure.

I was not present at the meeting in person but certainly with them in thoughts and prayers. Bern has came a long way with their large community center, park and a daycare center. They all work together and make things happen! It is very encouraging to find a large family is moving into Bern.

School Board/Accounting need to stay with the same systems of dividing revenue and costs charged to the different schools. No room for fuzzy math here. All should be based on enrollment numbers! The board also committed to an action plan and need to hold up their end of the agreement.
