New School Board to Continue Detachment Appeal

Rushville, IL – The Schuyler-Industry Community Unit School District will continue the appeal of a detachment petition. Last month the Regional Board of School Trustees approved the petition, which seeks to have 15 students and about $2 million in property moved from the Industry district to the Macomb district. Schuyler - Industry School Superintendent Matt Plater says members of the new board agreed they can not afford to lose the property or the students. The Industry school board had agreed to fight the detachment, but that board goes out of existence at the end of this month.
