Leepertown And Ladd Schools Step Closer To Merger

Posted by wlpo on November 10, 2011

The door’s been opened for Leepertown Elementary to close and merge into the Ladd School District.

Both the House and Senate unanimously approved a bill sponsored by Spring Valley’s Frank Mautino to allow districts to annex into another district even if they don’t share a border.  Leepertown officials want to close and join up with Ladd even though the districts don’t share a boundary.

Before Leepertown mergers with Ladd, voters in both districts first need to approve the idea.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
