School District May Close Its High School

An East Texas school district says they may be forced to close down the high school because of financial difficulties.

Karnack I.S.D. Is a 1A school district with only a little over 100 students in grades 7-thru-12.

The idea of closing down the high school campus was brought up Thursday during a school board meeting.

Students would go to schools in Marshall, Jefferson or Waskom.

Superintendent Cozzetta Robinson says the school's financial difficulties began when the town's only industry left about five years ago, "we have absolutely no industry. Here in Karnack at one time we had an army amunition plant. It makes it really hard for the school district."

Superintendent Robinson says closing down the high school is only one option.

She says they are also looking at cutting staff and working with other small districts to see how they thrive.

Robinson says the district will take several months to study all of their options.
