St. Paul high school will have class of 2011

The St. Paul school board decided Wednesday evening to allow junior class at Arlington High School to graduate in the spring of 2011.

Under a measure by the school board Arlington High School juniors will be the final graduating class, according to the Star Tribune.

Students and parents at the Meeting Wednesday night also lobbied for the sophomore class to graduate in 2012, but that was turned down by the school board, according to the Pioneer Press.

At least 150 students have to stay at the school for the plan to go into full motion. They would be sharing a building with the incoming Washington Technology Middle School students, according to the Pioneer Press.

Arlington is not the only school that is closing its doors. About eight other schools in the St. Paul area are either closing or combining with other schools, according to the Star Tribune.
