Stillwater school district sued over closing elementary schools


A parents' group sued the Stillwater school district Wednesday, alleging that the planned closings of three elementary schools are illegal and accusing two district officials of financial conflicts of interest.

The suit by 834 Voice, filed in Washington County District Court, also alleges violations of Minnesota's open meetings, bond and election laws.

Opponents of a March 3 school board vote to close the schools presented "unrebutted evidence" beforehand that closings would diminish property values and cause "substantial hardships" to students in those schools, the suit said.
