Schools Sharing

Several school districts in north east Nebraska are exploring potential sharing arrangements. School boards from Hartington Public, Newcastle and Wynot held a special meeting last week, with the Ponca school board observing.

Anderson said each school board will do their own review and then decide if they want to continue any discussions…………..
