PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

The Petersburg school board has voted to close Vernon Johns Junior High.

Interim Superintendent Linda Shifflette says closing the school could save the system $40,000 a year.

Since the plan was approved, eighth graders would go to Peabody Middle School, with ninth graders heading to Petersburg High School.
