Gibson Middle School to Become Elementary School

Danville, VA -- A Danville middle school will become an elementary school starting next year. The school board met Monday to decide on budget cuts, since they are down nearly $5 million for next year.

The board unanimously voted to convert Gibson Middle School into an elementary school. Gibson students will be split between Bonner and Westwood Middle Schools. The school board also says it is likely two smaller elementary schools will close and those students will be moved to the Gibson building.
