Regional superintendent denies petition for school consolidation

A petition to consolidate four Union County school districts into a single district has been denied by Regional Superintendent of Schools Janet Ulrich.

The petition sought seeking voter approval to merge Anna-Jonesboro, Anna, Jonesboro and Lick Creek school district into a single district consisting of two, three or four of the districts.

In rejecting the petition, Ulrich cited "alleged petition defects" which were not fully addressed. Lack of information about the possible final outcome of consolidation, as well as insufficient financial data also were noted.

See the next issue of The Gazette-Democrat for more details about the action.
