Study sees problems with Stanton

UPDATE: Both feasibility studies are on the Villisca Schools website. The Stanton Schools website has their feasibility results in non-PDF form.

VILLISCA -- A feasibility study presented by University of Northern Iowa Professor Dr. Robert Decker, recommended Whole Grade Sharing for Villisca and Corning's secondary schools.

The study was presented as part of two meetings at the Villisca High School gym on Thursday night.

Decker and his associates recommended the middle and high schools whole grade share. A full summary of the report, including the recommendations was expected to be on the Villisca Schools website by Friday morning.

For Stanton, Decker and associates didn't offer recommendations. Rather, Decker and associates commented that a whole grade sharing option between Villisca and Stanton would be problematic.

Villisca and Corning Superintendent William Stone noted during both meetings that Thursday night's feasibility study meeting was just the first step and that the process still had a ways to go.

There will be more on both meetings in Tuesday's edition of the Red Oak Express.
