It's a change that's been two years in the making: Electra ISD is now operating out of two schools instead of three.
Saturday folks in both communities took to the polls to let their
voices be heard on the issue. And with 90 percent of voters saying
"yes", the consolidation will move forward.
Clay County officials say some voters are confused about the proposed school consolidation.
For months now the Byers and Petrolia School Districts have been meeting
to talk about the consolidation of the two districts. Byers approved
the consolidation agreement Tuesday, and Thursday night the Petrolia
School Board is meeting to vote on it.
