A request to the Kansas State Board of Education to approve the consolidation of two northeast school district has won easy approval.

The superintendents of Axtell and Sabetha said Wednesday that
the process began years ago as enrollment declined. The process was
accelerated by recent declines in state funding.

With the state board's action, residents of the two districts
will now vote in May on the consolidation agreement. The new
district would operate much as the two independent districts do now
for a year before any changes are made.

Driving the decision, the superintendents say, was a desire to
maintain a quality education for students without further cuts in
staff or programs at the elementary grades.
