Two Columbus City High Schools are under consideration for closure. Brookhaven High School (pictured) is one of them. If it closes, it would be the district's first high school closure since 1982. District officials say declining enrollment and a budget deficit are reasons for the possible closures.
For the first time in more than 30 years, Columbus City Schools has proposed closing high schools. The district faces a budget deficit and enrollment has been on the decline. But the growing popularity of high school specialization and school choice also play a role in the closure decisions.
