Iowa school district in danger of being dissolved

Posted: Updated:

FARRAGUT, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Department of Education has announced it will recommend dissolving the Farragut Community School District.

The Daily Nonpareil reports primary concerns appear to be declining enrollment in the Fremont County district as well as another year of exceeding a state spending limit. The state has also told school officials to address shortcomings of accessibility to students.

Department spokeswoman Staci Hupp said in an email that the recommendation has not been made officially, but that she expects it to be on the State Board of Education's meeting agenda on November 18th. The decision will ultimately be made by the board.

The Farragut school board announced Monday that it will hold a community meeting next Wednesday to give an overview of the situation and allow Farragut and Hamburg residents to ask questions.
