A public hearing Monday evening invited people to hear about what a committee of 10 has been talking about for several months. In fact, some even said it’s been in discussion for years. Now, a committee wants to see what the public thinks about a proposed consolidation between Watseka Unit 9 and Crescent-Iroquois 249.
It’s another step toward a possible school merger between two Iroquois County districts.
Kankakee-Iroquois Regional Superintendent Gregg Murphy said his office has the responsibility of validating the petition application. If approved, the consolidation issue could appear on the April 2, 2019 ballot.
