June 29, 2022 Dear Leland Families and Community Members, The committee of ten would like to thank all of those who came out to vote on the local consolidation referendum. The referendum needed to be approved in both communities and it fell short. The feasibility study and consolidation effort have provided valuable and much-appreciated opportunities to engage with those who were for and those who were against consolidation. Both districts will continue to work individually, as well as together, to provide high-quality education that benefits our students and communities. Thank you so much for your passion for our children and schools.
