Rumors Flying About Monteagle Elementary Closing
The town is basically split between Marion and Grundy counties and very small portion of Franklin County and only has the one school to serve nearly 400 students. The director says if they find it cost effective, they would actually be requesting that Grundy County educate the students an equal amount of years with Marion County six (6) years verses six (6). But if the analysis showed that maintaining the current status is what is best for all involved then it would not make sense to “shave off” the 6, 7, and 8 grades. There are no middle schools in Grundy County, only K-8 and one high school. A decision will be made after the study is complete.
