By a 3-2 vote with one board member not voting Monday, the Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop (GFW) Board of Education proposed to close the Fairfax school beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.

Superintendent Lonnie Seifert said the school district is about $550,000 in debt and needs to reduce costs over the next couple years.

According to the New Ulm Journal, a public hearing on the closure proposal was set for 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 4, in the Gibbon gym. The board is expected to make a final decision on the proposal after the hearing.
