BASTROP, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Superintendent George Noflin presented the Morehouse Parish School Board with a plan to close schools, change grade configurations, reduce staff and change employee yearly status to balance the district's budget.

The board room was standing-room only Tuesday when Noflin presented the plan the board directed him to create in October.

Noflin was tasked with finding $3.4 million in the district's budget using any one or all of three methods provided by the board - revising job descriptions, reducing employees and consolidation.

The proposal, which was accepted as his recommendation by the board but not approved Tuesday, would include closing two schools - Cherry Ridge Elementary and H.V. Adams Elementary - and changing the grade configurations at the remaining elementary schools.
