Jackson County Superintendent Chester Shannon said he didn't want to agree to keep a K-8 or K-12 campus open in Swifton and then have to close it later like they did in Grubbs several years ago."We went through the closing of another campus and it was difficult," he said."I don't think the board ever wants to do that again.

Shannon said he thought it would be a good idea to wait and see how the number of students sorted out after consolidation.He said he thought the numbers might show a need to spread students out into more buildings such as the ones on the Swifton campus.
"I'm concerned right now," he said, "about what's going to happen if 120 kids walk on campus, how crowded it's going to be."He also said he had received several calls from parents "in our district to the south" who were planning to move into the Jackson County district, bringing the total enrollment number up.
