School Trustees Approve Detachment
Macomb, IL – The Macomb School District is about to get bigger. The Regional Board of School Trustees agreed to allow several families to detach from the current Industry School District to join Macomb. The change takes effect July 1, which is when the rest of the Industry district will merge with Schuyler County schools. The detachment involves 15 students and 2,000 acres of land with an assessed value of more than $2 million. The regional board said Macomb would offer the students a greater scope of activities and classes. Industry has 35 days to appeal the decision.
