Clarion, Dows districts to vote on consolidation

CLARION, Iowa (AP) — Residents in the Clarion-Goldfield and Dows school districts will vote Sept. 10 whether to consolidate the two districts.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1e8t9jx ) the districts have been sharing resources for nine years.

Superintendent for both districts Bob Olson says Dows sent students in grades fourth through 12th to Clarion this year and kept grades pre-kindergarten through third grade.

If the reorganization vote passes, all students would attend school in Clarion.

Olson says the reorganization vote must get 50 percent plus one in each district to move forward.
