School board votes to not consolidate schools

FOREST HILLS, OH (FOX19) - The Forest Hills School Board has voted unanimously to not merge two of its high schools.

Last spring, the district considered consolidating Anderson and Turpin High Schools to save money. There was a series of public meetings, where concerned parents voiced their objections.

Monday night, the board agree with those parents and voted to not consolidate the schools.

The district's new superintendent has urged the school board to put those ideas to rest in favor of getting voter approval for an operating levy in May.

The district says it's spending more than it is taking in and will fall into the red in 2013 if it doesn't increase revenues.
