School mergers on agenda

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 10:07 AM

The state Board of Education has a handy blog to keep up with events at the board meetings almost as they occur. You can check the link as the day progresses if you're interested in the Weiner School District merger with a neighbor and a couple of other merger proposals. So far today:

* Financial trouble at a charter school in Humphrey.

* Wickes and Van Cove will consolidate.

* Delight and Murfreesboro will merge -- the official end of the Weiner Delight idea.

* Board approves Weiner's annexation into the Harrisburg School District. In the beginning, all Weiner schools are preserved.
