6—Algeria (la.) Upper D«t Molntt Thunday, Dec. 21, 1967 State Board Replies On Area Request, For Consolidation Bancroft May Relocate Public Library Legal Angle Involved In North Kossuth The Iowa State Department of Public Instruction has issued an explanation of why there has teen no recent action in Kossuth County toward consolidation of presently unattached areas of the county to recognized school districts having high schools. Several weeks ago, H. J. McNertney, attorney representing citizens in three unattached districts in the county, wrote the County Hoard of Education on behalf of his people, asking why no action had taken place and suggesting that the three unattached districts, Greenwood, Ramsey and liancroft Independent, be consolidated into one area that would also include the existing Lakota, Ledyard, Grant and Swea City school districts - a complete consolidation of schools in the north portion of Kossuth county. D. J. Gilliland, reorganization consultant, wrote the Upper Des Moines in reply to this story as follows: "The implementation of the county board of education on attachments could not be com- pleted due to the Ledyard Community School vs. County Board of Education of Kossuth County legal conflict which had these districts in court until the Iowa Supreme Court decision of October 17, 19G7. "Any implementation of the county plan for the merger of the twelve graded districts under 275.12 mentioned in the story will have to defer until the matter of attachments under 275.1 has been completed with an effective date set and appeal time passed. "The implementation of school district reorganization, as stated in the Supreme Court decision in the Ledyard case, is the responsibility of the County Board of Education not the State Department of Public Instruction or the courts." From tills quote, it would aj>- pear that after the appeal time has passed from the recent court decision, the county board can take what action it wishes. No statement- was made as to how long from Oct. 17, 1967, the appeal limit is. The inference also seems to be that the county plan could call for the merger of the twelve graded districts mentioned, when legally possible. INVINCIBLE METAL FURNITURE franchiscd dealer — Upper Des Moines Pub. Co. Reutzers If plans now being considered develop further, Bancroft might have a new library in 1968. A location on Main Street is under consideration. William Droessler, president of the board, says they feel that "the interests of the community can best be served if the library were located on the MaJn Street where it would be more readily accessible." At the present time the library is located in the Bancroft public school building. Droessler says that the board Is "exploring the possibilities" in deciding how to finance the project. Two of the possibilities are the use of federal funds or relying on local contributions. Also under discussion are costs, floor space requirements, room arrangements and maintenance problems. The Farmers and Traders Savings Bank of Bancroft Increased its annual gift to the library fund to $1,000 this year. Droessler says that this money will be used for the new building if the project is undertaken. Other members of the library board are Mrs. Don Welp, Mrs. Ben Welp, Mrs. James Welp, Mrs. Dick Shoenhair, Mrs. R. E. Weber and Mrs. Frank Wenzel, the librarian.
