Breathitt Co. elementary school on verge of closing

The doors may be closing at one Breathitt County elementary school.

According to WYMT, Breathitt County school officials are moving forward with plans to close Rousseau Elementary School.

That caused dozens of students, parents and teachers to show their support for the school at Tuesday's meeting of the Breathitt County Board of Education.

More than 80 people attended the meeting, which lasted less than five minutes.

Board members refused to adopt the meeting's agenda that included plans to close the school.

Schools in Breathitt County have been under state management since last year.

If the commissioner approves the plan, the school will shut down.
