The Lenoir County school board voted Tuesday night to close the Kennedy Home School because of budget constraints. It's hoped the school system will save around $400,000.
According to their website, students at the school are residents of Kennedy Memorial Home, a campus where kids temporarily live, and was once called an orphanage.
The 26 students currently going to Kennedy Home School will now transfer to other schools in Lenoir County.
