A new, merged school district in north east Nebraska is preparing for the fall term.
Today (Friday) is the first day for the Hartington-Newcastle district. The high school in Newcastle closed, and the school board dissolved as the districts consolidated.
Superintendent Randy Anderson says there will still be students in Newcastle.

Anderson says they are still waiting for the numbers in Newcastle to stabilize before they make final staffing decisions.

Anderson says they are still working through the budget for the combined district.

Newcastle had about seventy students in grades K through 12 when the school year ended. The fall term starts August 14th.
