Corsica And Stickney School Districts Considering Consolidation

Corsica And Stickney School Districts Considering Consolidation


A meeting regarding possible consolidation of the Corsica and Stickney school districts was held last night. Declining enrollment numbers were discussed at the meeting of the two school boards. Stickney will enroll fewer than 100 students next year. Corsica has lost nearly 30 students in the past four years. Budget savings were also outlined. A consolidation is expected to save the two districts a total of over 680,000 dollars in the first year. Under the plan, students in grades K through 6 would attend school in Stickney. Students in grades 7 through 12 would go to school in Corsica. If the school boards in Corsica and Stickney approve the plan, it would be submitted to the state Department of Education and later put to a public vote. The new consolidated district, if approved, would take effect in July of next year.
