Proposed closings of three schools in Stillwater district prompt storm of protes


A furious confrontation between the Stillwater school district and parents is roiling the district’s plan to shutter two highly ranked elementary schools. Opponents say closing Marine on St. Croix’s only elementary school and another rural school, Withrow Elementary in Hugo, would rip the heart out of those communities and force an exodus to charter schools.

Another school targeted for closing — the larger, more urban Oak Park Elementary — draws students from Oak Park Heights and Stillwater. In all, the plan would close three of the district’s 10 elementary schools.
