Five schools could close in Putnam County

PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. — The Putnam County School District proposed a new plan to close five schools while opening nine new schools within the next 10 years.

The proposal is to improve the district economically and help resize the district.

However, parents at E-H Miller, one of the schools expected to close, are concerned because this is the only school in the county that has specialized instructional courses for special needs students.
