The Wood River-Hartford School Board unanimously approved a resolution opposing consolidation of the East Alton-Wood River, Wood River-Hartford and East Alton School Districts. East Alton and Elementary and East Alton Wood River High School districts have not taken an official position on the consolidation.
The resolution cites a lack of information about the effects that consolidation would have on the well being of students and staff and financial issues. November 8th voters will decide whether they will support consolidation. Similar consolidation efforts were voted down in 2011 and 2015.
