One to Watch
This four-way potential school district merger in Herkimer is on my radar, because if it passes, others may be encouraged to follow suit. The districts are Frankfort-Schuyler (1209 students in 2009–2010), Herkimer (1200 students), Ilion (1570 students), and Mohawk (875 students). Details of the feasibility study are available on any of those school districts' websites. The resulting district would serve over 4800 students, putting it a little under Ithaca City School District's total population.
