APS board votes to close Barrett, Essex and Rankin

By John Published: March 5, 2012

The Akron school board tonight voted to close Barrett, Essex and Rankin elementary schools. Superintendent David James also gave them a preview of pain to come, which could include the elimination of 140 teaching jobs for starters. The district must whack $22 million off of expenses by May, then pass a levy in November or face the prospect of cutting another $23 million this time next year.

It's going to be a rough spring.
