RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- The Richmond School Board is now scrambling to come up with $1 million after a cost cutting plan fell through. Board members voted in the 11th hour of Monday night's meeting not to close two schools originally on the chopping block.
Parents say they're glad their kids will still be able to go to Clark Springs Elementary school; however, school board members will still have to find the money they would have saved by closing it down.
Michelle Goodnight simply wants the best for her daughter who will attend Clark Springs when she's old enough.
"I think it's a good idea to keep it open," said Goodnight. "I didn't want them to close it down. My brother is doing well at the school. It's a good school for all the kids and their environment."
