Iowa Supreme Court to hear case on school consolidation

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case that would allow voters to decide if two school districts should consolidate.


The Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency had planned a public vote to merge East Central School District with the Preston Community School District. Officials in East Central challenged the decision, saying the education agency did not have the authority to call for the vote.

A lower court sided with the agency in 2011. The East Central School board appealed the ruling.

The Iowa Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case on April 4 in Des Moines.
