School Regionalization/Consolidation

Those of you who attended our Back to School Night heard me speak about the pending threat of regionalization/consolidation. In March 2010, the executive county superintendent will be required, by law, to submit a plan to regionalize school districts in each county. Harding, along with other K-8 and small districts are being targeted for the intiative. Unfortunately there are many negative aspects to regionalization besides losing our "small school atmosphere." These include an increase in taxes (due to tax apportionment and incurred debt), larger class sizes, lack of board representation and a host of other concerns.

This blog will serve as a format to answer any questions that you may have regarding school regionalization/consolidation.
