School consolidation meeting Wednesday night

Grass Valley and Nevada City school districts will convene tonight to determine if they wish to develop a petition to proceed in the consolidation process.

At a Dec. 5 meeting, the boards agreed to develop a document explaining the reasons for consolidation and to look at the revenues from both districts to analyze the financial impact of consolidation, which will be released at today’s meeting, at 6 p.m. at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools/Houser Room at 112 Nevada City Highway.

The boards will be deciding whether to take action or try to gain more information and/or community input, said Eric Fredrickson, Grass Valley School District superintendent.

“I’m not getting a feel either way,” Fredrickson said. “I think both boards still want to know more information and I know budget was one of the concerns and there will be a presentation about the financial impact. We left the agenda pretty open so the board can wait or take action.

“I think there’s a lot of community interest,” Fredrickson said. “I think that’s the whole idea that the community needs to get informed and involved and I think there’s been much more awareness
