The consolidation of 5 school districts into one, encompassing 377 square miles in Illinois, is described in this booklet. Information is included on the actual consolidation; the people and communities served by the new school district; programs and facilities in the elementary schools and the high school; and the Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act Project, which provided for the dissemination. Information was collected from community residents on employment, specific occupation, school enrollment, and the highest educational level achieved.

Results of these studies are reported in the booklet along with descriptions of the programs in the elementary schools and the high school. (PS)
