Dimmick board approves consolidation ballot question

Posted by wlpo on March 8, 2016

If enough voters say yes, the Cherry and Dimmick school districts will formally be merged starting next year.

The Dimmick School Board approved a petition allowing them to combine with Cherry. School board members believe the move would be good for both schools, and one that could result in lower taxes in both districts. They also said any staff changes that would come from the move have already been made.

Class sizes at Dimmick are already smaller than the average statewide, so the school board says increased class sizes in the future are “not an issue they’ll have to contend with.”

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
