SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - One Sullivan County school is looking to the future.

We're talking about the Northeast School Corporation.

News 10 spoke with Superintendent Mark Baker who says the corporation has seen a drop in enrollment and revenue.

Baker says a focus group has come up with three possible plans for the schools.

One is to have a kindergarten through 6th grade building in Shelburn and 7th through 12th grades at North Central.

Second is to have kindergarten through 4th at Shelburn and 5th through 12th at North Central.

And the last is to build onto North Central and have it be a kindergarten through 12th building.

Baker says there's no specific timeline for when any of this would happen.

The absolute earliest would be the 2019 - 2020 school year.

The next info meeting is set for March 12 at Northeast Middle School Gym at 7 p.m.
