Re-Districting Could be Costly to Both School Districts

There were many interesting things that came out of the special Shelby County R-IV School Board meeting on Thursday, May 3 at South Shelby High School.
   Mickes O’Toole Law
   Firm Opinion on
   Mickes O’Toole representative Katie Forster addressed the issue of redistricting. She went over the scenarios of what could happen depending on how the vote comes out.
   Forster said that if the split takes place, any assets received by the Macon R-1 District would have to be compensated for. Macon R-1 would have to pay Shelby County R-IV for those assets. The districts would attempt to work together to come up with a fair value of those assets to be paid. If they are unable to, then it will go back to the State board (arbitrators) to be determined.
   Forster explained that courts have recognized and allowed receiving districts (Macon R-1 in this instance) to be able to issue their own tax levy to be able to pay for these assets. She said it’s all contingent on the vote right now.
   Forster said that they would look at the district’s entire debtness when figuring what Macon R-1 would have to pay. That would include the Ag-shop project that the district is currently paying on.
   Larry J. Hart Speaks
   About Financing
   One of the main things Hart emphasized was that when the district goes to try to get its interest rate for the project, the redistricting issue is going to be seen as a liability against the rate. He suggested that the district wait until after the vote so they can get the best possible rate.

Clarence Leaders Opposed to Re-Districting Hold Meeting

A community meeting at the Clarence Care Center for those opposed to the Re-Districting of the Shelby County R-IV School District was held Sunday evening with just under 40 people present.
   Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex as well as board members Scott Gough and board president Aaron Gaines were on hand to answer any questions the public had.
   There was obvious concern with many of the people at the meeting. They also expressed deep frustration for those who are leading the charge for the split. Those people were invited to the meeting to talk about why they are doing this, but all declined to show up.
   Three Shelby County R-IV School Board members from Clarence were invited as well. One had a prior family commitment, and meeting organizer Amy Harre said another one said he was going to stay neutral in the matter, while the other didn’t respond to the invitation. There was frustration about that as well.
   Board member Scott Gough was asked to explain the different scenarios that could be possible if the redistricting takes place. He basically reviewed what was said in the special meeting last Thursday by the District’s attorneys.
   There is a petition that has been going around Clarence for those who are against the re-districting to sign. Out of the approximate 800 people in Clarence, they had around 250 signatures...several of which were on the original petition in favor of the split.
