Chairman of the committee is John Hofmeyer of Fayette and the secretary is Sup't Paul C. Pickett of Fayette. The members of this general study committee are; Arnold Reuber, Leroy Newton, Max Jennings, E. W. Maurer, Marvin Ingles, Chester Cumberland, Sup't. Dan Coffman, Ken Nading, Lyle Arthur, and Sup't.Wm. Tock. These men have been studying the possibility for combining these districts into one of the finest districts in the State of Iowa — it would have an evaluation of about $12,000,000 with 400 high school students and 1200 elementary pupils. It is thought that such a district, by keeping grades from the kindergarten through grade nine in the local communities, would be able to fit the curriculum to the needs and desires of the communities and provide excellent grade and junior high facilities, except in the Westgate area of the West Central district. Needs in the Westgate area would necessitate the building of a new grade school there. Subsidiary committees are now at work gathering information about School Programs, Building and Plant Facilities, Transportation, and Finance in the present districts. This information will be gathered together and presented at public meetings which will be held throughout the areas involved in the near future.
