Supporters and opponents of a three-district consolidation proposal agree kids should have access to a broader curriculum.
The measure would combine the Avon, Abingdon and Bushnell-Prairie City districts into one.
Shannon Price opposes the consolidation. She loves the proposed curriculum for the new district. She says the B-PC district should investigate other options, including use of the Internet to provide those classes.
Voters in the Avon, Abingdon and Bushnell-Prairie City School Districts will decide March 20th whether the districts should consolidate.
The Committee of 10 supports consolidation. It will launch an informational campaign later this month
Committee Chair Jerry Arthur said, ”We're just interested in trying to provide enough information so that the public knows what they're voting on rather than just to say 'well, you know, we're not in favor of it because it's a change.”
The committee will send postcards to registered voters in the three districts.
