Organizational Options for School Districts
The difficult financial environment which governments are facing is promoting a renewed call for mergers and consolidation. It's a complicated situation, however, that requires deliberate and careful consideration of the economic, political, and opportunity issues that are involved. The OCM BOCES, in collaboration with area researchers and consultants, is facilitating thoughtful consideration of the issue and all organizational options.
