LAGRANGE, Ind. (WFFT) - Lakeland School Corporation's board will consider three different options about what schools to keep open next year.

The district is looking at making major cuts to make up for less state funding.

Last month a committee made of up several parents and school leaders met to decide what options are available.

The original option includes closing Lima Brighton Elementary and Willcott Mills Elementary.

A new option includes closing Lakeland Middle School with grades K-6 at the elementaries and 7-12 at the high school.

The board can also keep the five schools open and look for other cuts.

The school board will make a decision Monday night.
