They Retreated, They Made One Decision

It is for sure, announced today by the school board. Hickman Mills C-1 school district will loss one high school, starting the 2010-11 academic year. The plan is to separate by grades, with 10-12 together, 8-9 together and 6-7 together. Which high school will cease to exist and exactly which buildings will be used for what are not yet fully determined. A Boundary Committee meeting is scheduled for February 2nd, and a Town Hall meeting will be scheduled to give the community an opportunity to make their voices heard. The school board, as noted in the Kansas City Star article, is already planning on making changes with the leased offices and the maintainance department facility. One question answered with certainty now. Several more to go, and some community mourning to do as well.
