ANW needs to use Lincoln for day school

The ANW day school provides services for students with severe behavioral issues. A facility in Chanute cannot be used because of safety concerns, so ANW leaders asked to use the former Lincoln Elementary School during this school year. In other facilities news, sensors will be installed in Iola Middle and High School bathrooms to reduce vaping and bad behavior.

Since USD 257 moved out of three older elementary schools, two agencies have asked to use the buildings. 

On Monday, the ANW Special Education Cooperative asked to use the former Lincoln Elementary School for its day school program.
