It is probable a vote on reorganization of the Grant Consolidated school, a move which would divide the district between Swea City and Ledyard, will be held within a month, according to an announcement made Tuesday morning. The move has been under consideration for about a year, due to the fact only 72 pupils are enrolled in the 12 grades at Grant at the present time. There have already been meetings held with the Swea City and Ledyard school boards for discussion,of,the move. The plan, if voted for by the necessary number of .persons, would .divide the 30 sections in the district, wJth .children from .the east; half •going to" Ledyard and children from the west half to Swea City for their future education. If passed, the present Grant school would be discontinued at the end of the present school year and the new plan would be in effect after July 1, 1956 in time for the 1956-57 year. Petitions have been signed and filed with the Swea' City, Ledyard and Grant school boards, requesting a vote on the subject, and it is expected the boards will meet and call an election. Grant residents were not in favor of reorganization when it was discussed two years.ago, but the apparent necessity of a change has been a tonic of discussion 'there for a year. Soren Pedersen is president of the Grant schofll board. Other members are Delmar Anderson, Leonard Mino, Sam Link and Orville Ramsey.
