FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A group trying to save Fort Wayne's Elmhurst High School say they have some new ammunition in their quest.

The group called 'Save Our School, Elmhurst High School' met at the Waynedale Azars Wednesday to discuss tactics. Members are trying to build a case to reverse the school district's decision to close Elmhurst at the end of this school year. Now they say the district is inflating expense figures.

Save Our School representative Bob Koop says, “On the building that they said it was gonna cost 25 million to repair the building, which we found out the original estimate was only 9 million so there's 16 million difference that we've come up with.”

The group says they want answers from the school board. They say school officials are ignoring their requests for information.
