More Iowa schools considering merging districts

from The Associated Press via Education Week

Iowa will have 100 fewer school districts next year than it did in 1965 as districts merge to try to save money and achieve financial security. Twelve school districts in parts of western and northern Iowa will become six districts next year after voters approved mergers. Other school districts are considering combining too. The Des Moines Register reported that the number of Iowa school districts will be 353 next year, down from 458 in 1965. That's when the state Legislature required all areas of Iowa to become part of a school district with a high school. At one point the state had more than 1,500 districts. more
