The Hardin-Central C-2 Board of Education offered their support Monday night in favor of the annexation map released by the Stet R-XV school district. Click to hear KMZU’s Chelsea Wade talk with Hardin-Central Superintendent Martin Griffin:
Hardin-Central made the announcement Monday in response to an email sent from Stet Superintendent John Wiggans. The maps are believed to be facing some opposition from districts in Stet’s annexation plan. Officials with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education told Wiggans and his board on Friday to proceed with putting the measure on the April 3rd ballot.
If the neighboring districts fail to pass the issue, the state arbitration board would take the reins. Under the plan, 43 to 44 students would go to Hardin-Central. Six to eight will attend school in Braymer. Norborne would get about five to six students and two to three students would end up in the Polo district.
Stet faces a Jan. 17 deadline to have the measure certified.
