Industry, IL – The Industry school board has directed its attorney to appeal a decision transferring about 6,000 acres and 15 students to the Macomb school district. Industry Superintendent Ross Foley says the board decided the move would cripple school operations. It would reduce the $15-million assessed valuation by about one-seventh. Foley says members of the joint Industry and Schuyler County board have indicated they will pursue the appeal after July 1, when the Industry district goes out of existence.
The Regional Board of School Trustees granted the detachment earlier this month.
