Combining School District Discussed by Boards
The board of education of Abbotsford and Principal Herbert Juneau met the Colby board of education and the Principal John Ravey, at the Colby high school, Monday evening, to discuss the possibilities of and plans for a merging the Colby and Abbotsford school districts to increase the educational facilities and advantages for the students in this area.
The Abbotsford board proposed that the two districts be merged and a complete survey of the needs of the area; and the building potential in terms of size, student enrollment, course offerings, site, and cost, be made as soon as possible. Until such a time as that survey can be completed and plans drawn up for a new and larger high school, that the students of the enlarged district be assigned to the existing Colby and Abbotsford high school building so that there will be no interruption in their training.
This planning program, as proposed by the Abbotsford board of education, would include a committee composed of representative members of all parts of the newly enlarged union high school district.
It was the final recommendation of the board to approach the topic with the utmost caution and deliberation.
