The State Board of Education voted 5-2 this morning to close Weiner High School, which includes grades 7-12. The Harrisburg School District had petitioned to close the campus.
The Harrisburg School Board asked the state board to close the Weiner school, annexed into the Harrisburg district in 2010, and move its grades to Harrisburg campuses to save money.
