A representative of a Warren County group that could ask Corry to increase its school district by three schools is coming to Corry.
David Bauer, a representative of 4 Schools 4 Warren County, will attend a public meeting with the Corry Area School Board on Nov. 2 at 4:30 p.m. in the District Administration Office.
Mike Andrus, business manager for the district, said the meeting will be an informational session where Bauer will explain about a secession idea being discussed by the group he represents.
Members of 4 Schools 4 Warren County want to keep the four existing high schools in Warren County — Eisenhower High School, Youngsville High School, Sheffield High School and Warren High School.
But the Warren County School District’s board of directors are looking at possibly reducing the high schools to two— Warren High School and Youngsville High School.
The secession plan would link three schools in the Eisenhower attendance area — Eisenhower High School, Russell Elementary School and Sugar Grove Elementary School — into the Corry Area School District.
A second Warren County High School — Sheffield High School — would join either Kane Area School District or Forest Area School District, according to state requirements.
Andrus told the Corry Area School Board about the idea after the board’s Oct. 12 meeting. But details are sketchy, and Corry’s board would like some more details about the idea, which is exactly that at this point — an idea.
