The Hartington Public and Newcastle School boards have both voted to support consolidation. The two adjoining districts have been in discussions for several months.

Hartington Public Superintendent Randy Anderson said the board votes are not the final step…

 

Anderson says each district will have a few more meetings to sort out their details…

 

The board was told at their last meeting that about thirty four students from Newcastle would move to the Hartington building, with hopes of eleven staying at an elementary building in Newcastle.

Anderson says they need to work out the fine points of the merger by this fall…

 

A number of Newcastle students are also open enrolling out of the district with some going to Ponca and others to Allen.
