Anderson, Turpin high schools to remain separate due to high merger cost

Online survey to find alternatives

CINCINNATI -- Two will not become one in the Forest Hills Local School District.
 
Anderson and Turpin high schools will remain as separate schools for the foreseeable future, Forest Hills School Board President Jim Frooman said Monday at a board meeting.
 
Frooman said there was discussion of merging Anderson and Turpin and creating a second middle school, but that option is too expensive.
 
The district will proceed with a telephone and online survey this week on two possible alternatives:
 
Option No. 1
  • Renovate Anderson High School
  • Renovate Turpin High School
  • Renovate the middle school
  • Renovate five elementary schools
  • Build one new elementary school

Option No. 2

  • Renovate Anderson High School
  • Renovate Turpin High School
  • Renovate the middle school
  • Build four new elementary schools
The next board meeting on June 9 is a special workshop. The next regular meeting is June 23.
 
The district hopes to have survey results available for these meetings.
