School board propose county meeting At a meeting of the Clark County Association of School Boards at Granton Jan. 14, it was agreed to call a meeting of all school boards in Marathon, Wood, Taylor and Clark counties to discuss mutual school problems.
The meeting was set at the Colby high school Monday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m.
Several members at the Clark County meeting expressed concern about the ever-increasing cost of school operation as it pertains to already over-burdened tax bases.
“The consensus of the Clark County school board meeting was that something should and can be done if we exert unified strength,” said Jack Nikolay of the Abbotsford School Board.
