Bill would give money to sharing districts
ST. PAUL - Small, rural school districts are hurting for money and not very attractive to potential superintendents, a Minnesota Senate committee heard Thursday.
Often the schools don't want to share a superintendent with a nearby district, fearing loss of autonomy. But Sen. Gary Kubly, DFL-Granite Falls, wants the state to pay $30,000 annually to any district willing to share.
A superintendent who splits his time between Canby and Hendricks said sharing makes sense.
