One Piece Still Remains to Finalize Morris-Cyrus Consolidation 10 Jun 13

The Morris And Cyrus School Districts are still waiting for a new
district number, to officially dissolve the two existing districts and
form a newly consolidated district. Although the new district will
assume the Morris Area Public Schools name, a new district number will
replace Cyrus’ #611 and Morris’ #769.

The Minnesota Department of Education assigns district numbers. In
their request for consolidation, the Morris School District requested
#1769, but the final decision will be made by Commissioner of
Education Brenda Cassellius.

The school year officially ends on June 30 and district administration
hope to have the new number in place by July 1.
