In a special meeting on November 14th, the Boone County Board of Education rescinded their recommendations of closing and consolidating several schools in the 2017-2018 school year.

This includes Whitesville Elementary, Van Elementary, and Van Jr. Sr. High School.

School board members confirm that all three schools will remain open next year and recommendation notices will be taken down at the schools on November 15th.
