Lefdal says they are working through many details…

 

The current plan would place a K through 4 building in Newcastle, with the rest of the students going to Hartington. Lefdal says they are also trying to help their teachers through the transition…

 

The new Hartington-Newcastle school district would be in place to begin the 2014 school year. Declining numbers in the Newcastle district led to the decision to merge. The latest enrollment numbers show seventy seven students in the Newcastle district.
