Dissolved Iowa school district to begin settling liabilities

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

A southwest Iowa school district that was dissolved now has to close its books, settle its liabilities and dispose of property such as desks and buildings.

A former Iowa City schools superintendent, is overseeing the process.

Plugge is charged with oversight as part of his role as the chief administrator of the Green Hills Area Education Agency.

State law gives him the authority to approve financial and personnel decisions, taking the power away from the local school board.

The Iowa Board of Education voted to close the Farragut School District earlier this month after officials said it was operating with a negative financial balance and sub-minimal education standards.
