The Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corp. board plans on starting a $50 million construction project that would close Stinesville Elementary School.
A number of sitting members of both the Monroe County Community and Richland-Bean Blossom school boards will not stand for re-election.
More than one-third of R-BB students receive free or reduced price lunches.
The cuts saved $878,715 from a budget that was $800,000 in the red.
RBB is considering eliminating personnel to balance its budget.
Nearly $200,000 in grant funding will transition middle school math, language arts and social studies curriculums away from using printed textbooks.
Deciding to cancel or delay school requires input from district superintendents who all have slightly different decision-making processes.
Richland-Bean Blossom School Corporation in northwestern Monroe County will have to rely on a ballot initiative before it can go ahead with a $37 million plan to renovate its schools.
