The recession is forcing more school districts across the state to consider closing schools instead of cutting academic, club and sports programs. The Oregonian reports more than 30 schools could be shut down in the next two years. Districts say a loss in federal stimulus money; falling enrollment and rising costs of health care and the State Workers Retirement System have caused them to consider the closures.
