Angry parents and students in Anderson are speaking out about the fate of two local high schools as the school district
battles a major budget deficit. Anderson school board officials heard their objections at a meeting Tuesday night regarding
two options. The first would merge Anderson and Highland high schools into one facility, grades 10 to 12. The second option
would keep the two high schools open as grades 7-12 facilities. Most participants who spoke at Tuesday’s meeting favored
the latter option. The board is expected to vote on the issue next week. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
