LE ROY — Elementary classes within the Southern Coffey County school district will be consolidated and middle school students moved.

Le Roy-Gridley USD 245 Board of Education members voted unanimously at a special April 16 meeting to move all elementary school students within the district to Gridley, while the middle school students will be taught in Le Roy.

The moves could save the district between $150,000 and $200,000 annually for a district that has experienced drops in enrollment in recent years, Superintendent of Schools Russ Millward told the Coffey County Republican.
