Beardstown Board Votes on Charter School
Students and staff at Beardstown Charter School are resting easier after the school board decided to keep its doors open. The good news came at Wednesday's budget meeting. Terms involving financial matters are still being negotiated.
The district faces a $1.4 million shortfall because of state aid cuts. It's money the charter school depends on, because 80 percent of its students are low-income.
