    Districts might share school chief
    2/6/2006 - By Jeff Gard -

    Northwest Herald
    RICHMOND - Nippersink District 2 and Richmond-Burton Community High School District 157 could share high school Superintendent Dan Oest starting with the 2007-08 school year.

    Sharing a superintendent could reduce costs for both districts and offer students a continuous curriculum from kindergarten to 12th grade, but Oest would have to juggle two school boards, two staffs, and two budgets.
