The only school Minneapolis can close


Unlike other city schools the district wanted to close this year, Downtown Open is the only one that will shut down.

Downtown Open -- an elementary school in the heart of the city that has forged strong ties to the business community -- will close at the end of the school year after a 13-year run.

The school, tucked inside the Baker Building, 706 2nd Ave. S., is the one Minneapolis public school set to close this year. The school district postponed a controversial reorganization plan floated earlier this year that would close several other city schools.
