The Gilmore City-Bradgate Board of Education voted Wednesday night (Oct. 23) 3-2 to pursue sharing talks with Humboldt for the 2014-15 school year.
Board members Ron Warren, Tawny Hoover and Beau Jergens voted in favor of the document while board members Deb Lanus and Judy Marchant voted against the move.
During the meeting the GC-B Board also indicated its preference for continuing a whole-grade sharing agreement with West Bend-Mallard for grades 7-12. Currently, 17 GC-B students attend classes in West Bend.
GC-B Interim Superintendent Jeff Herzberg told the board that 41 GC-B students are currently open enrolled out to Humboldt, costing the district $240,000.
The Humboldt Board of Education was expected to approve the document at a special meeting this week.
Herzberg told the Gilmore City-Bradgate Board that the document does not bind the district to any agreement with Humboldt, but merely indicates to the Iowa Department of Education that the district is exploring school sharing options for the next school year.
