At a special meeting last Friday in Gibbon, the GFW School Board passed a resolution to close the Fairfax site starting next fall. Decision Superintendent Lonnie Seifert reviewed a meeting with representatives from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) on February 25. He was told that the District had to either close a building or find another $207,000 to cut. “I don’t know where we will ever find another $207,000,” stated Seifert. He added that he had to have a decision by the end of March.
