The Board of Trustees for Morningside Community School in Columbia will decide on Aug. 5 whether the school will stay open.
The school, housed in the Unity Center at 1600 W. Broadway, is at risk of closing because of low enrollment.
The board met Saturday with parents of current and prospective students to discuss Morningside’s future. To stay open, the school would need a fall enrollment of at least 20 students; right now, it has nine.
The private, non-parochial school is for children kindergarten through seventh-grade and emphasizes hands-on learning tailored to each child.
