Boyd School won't close
Placeholder Image
After an early summer scare, it appears Boyd Christian School will meet its financial needs and be able to hold classes next year.A drastic cry for help over the Internet has resulted in increased donations and several new students, according to Boyd headmaster Weldon Parkinson.“We are getting some donations and our enrollment is much better so we think everything will be good to go for the 2012-13 school year,” Parkinson said yesterday.Asked if Boyd was in real danger of closing, Parkinson said, “This was the real deal. There were some circumstances the school faced where we really needed to climb out of a hole and we couldn’t borrow money to do it. We have to operate with a balanced budget.”The Internet pleas were needed for some supporters to realize how dire the financial situation at Boyd had become.
