Thurtday, Sept. 16, 1965 Algona (la.) Upp«r DM Moln«*~S School District Reorganization Looms County School Supt. A. M. Quintard, members of the county school board and SOpersons representing public school boards from districts In south Kossuth met Wednesday evening, Sept. 8, at the courthouse here for a quiet discussion of reorganization and similar subjects. "We didn't solve any problems - and didn't intend to," stated Supt, Qulntard after the meeting. He continued, "our primary objective was to review reorganization Information that many present had not heard during the past 10 years." During the meeting, the county board stated it would be very happy to meet with any group which had a plan for its area. One of the more important items discussed was the method of an area becoming part of a school district, including circulation of petitions, voting, etc. Present school law in Iowa requires school districts without a high school to become part of a high school district before April 1,1966. Such areas in south Kossuth can be found in Lotts Creek, Prairie, Riverdale, Sherman and Whittemore townships. School board members from those areas were Invited and present at Wednesday's meeting, plus others. These areas may, by taking proper steps, attach themselves to an existing district before the deadline. Reason for reviewing the matter was the fact that most reorganization was completed about 10 years ago - and little said about it since - at least In public. It was pointed out that a school district, by state law, cannot operate If it has less than 300 students, with such children required to attend school in a larger, reorganized district after proper steps, including a vote, have been taken. This newspaper announced in an earlier story details on circulation of petitions for reorganization of four districts in north Kossuth - Greenwood, Ramsey, Bancroft and Ledyard. Petitioning will result in action by the f ARM EQUIP. Li* '. •• .., •.••,.-.- .« ••-.(, v T E county board, including a meeting for hearing objections to the plan, if any. If there are none and voters indicate they want reorganization with the necessary "yes" vote totals, the new district becomes a reality. An adjacent outline map shows the area of Kossuth county which is being proposed as a new Ledyard Community School District, and which would take In some of the county area not presently attached to a high school district. This is the area where voters will presumably decide whether or not they wish to form such a new district. Supt. Qulntard also stated Thursday, that no similar future meetings have been slated - but would be if necessary to get the true story of reorganization to the people. Still remaining on the drawing board, marked for future reference, is the so-called "final reorganization" program, after which Kossuth will likely wind up with two, or possibly three, public high schools. As yet, there-is no-way-of knowing when that reprgaiiizatlon com?, pleted.
