CHARLES CITY, Iowa – We all learn how to share at a very young age and now two North Iowa school districts are putting that idea into practice.

On Monday, the New Hampton and Charles City school districts met with education officials to talk about the possibility of sharing a teacher librarian.

This partnership would allow the schools to increase their student enrollment by roughly 25 students and for Superintendent Dan Cox from Charles City, this is good news.

“The districts will also receive money for the fact that we’re sharing and so that helps us, we’re going to graduate a really large senior class in May so this will help cushion the blow when they leave and we have a reduced student enrollment count next year,” Cox said.

The arrangement is still in the works but will be determined following a vote from the State Department of Education.
