Davidson high school to be closed

DAVIDSON - The Davidson school district in southern Tillman County has submitted a resolution to the Oklahoma State Department of Education to eliminate the district's high school (grades 9-12), a department spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

Steffi Corcoran, the department's director of communications, said the department has received the resolution from the Davidson school district for review..

Davidson Superintendent Phillip Ratcliff was not available to speak about the proposal Wednesday. Through a district official, the superintendent confirmed that the district's board of trustees had approved the resolution and is awaiting approval from the state Board of Education before calling an election through the Tillman County Election Board. In that election, voters would decide whether to approve the elimination of the high school grades and send those students to another district following the eighth grade.

Current enrollment at Davidson schools for students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade is 57 students.
