A southwest Kansas school district is closing its two schools and sending students 11 miles away to a neighboring district next year.

The boards of the Hanston and Jetmore districts approved the merger last week. They planned to discuss details of the agreement Wednesday night at a meeting in Jetmore.

Hanston has about 70 students who will be making the move. Hanston superintendent Dan Binder says the district doesn't have many teachers, and they'll be considered for jobs in Jetmore.

The new district will be known as the Hodgeman County School District.

The Hutchinson News reports that the Hanston school board will try to find new uses for the community's two school buildings. Some of the rooms in a building constructed in 1954 already are being leased to businesses.
