Cataract Elementary School in Sparta will close after end of school year
SPARTA, Wis. (WKBT) — The Sparta Area School Board announced Cataract Elementary School will close after this school year.
The closure is a result of budget cuts and a failed referendum, district leaders said.
“We acknowledge and understand the feelings that they’re experiencing right now,” said Sparta High School Principal Sam Russ. “However, we are now shifting towards how we can support the families and students in making sure that they have a very good end of the school year and be very excited about the upcoming school year,”
Russ says students and their families have the option of choosing to go to a local charter school or Herman Elementary School.
