Jackson Elementary set to close

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._Jackson Elementary School in Lawton is closing down at the end of this school year.

Superintendent Tom Deighan says low enrollment is the primary reason. Currently, the enrollment is just a little over 110. The district told parents of the decision on Friday and made the decision public on Monday. Deighan says they will move the students to Ridgecrest Elementary which is a little over one mile west of Jackson. Most of the faculty will transfer there, as well. The closure leaves Lawton with 22 elementary schools.

The district has no plans at the current time to use the building for another purpose.
