School Districts – Consolidation July 8, 1906

County Superintendent Hears Petition for Consolidation

Morning Olympian July 8, 1906

County Superintendent Fred Brown left last night for Yelm where he will hear a petition of school districts 13, 57, & 58 for consolidation.  The petition will probably be granted.

The object of the consolidation is that districts 57 and 58 employ a teacher and one teacher could very easily do the work at less expense. With one teacher they could have a nine month school, it is stated.

Mr. Brown yesterday received the vote of districts 41 and 22 to unite into a union high school district.  He will number the district union high school district No. 3.
