Would-be Detachment Suit Must Start Anew

Macomb, IL – A judge has sent a possible school detachment back to the starting point. Dissatisfied with rulings prepared by attorneys, a McDonough County judge has said a group of parents who want their students to attend Macomb Schools must prepare a new petition. He says it must ask that the students transfer from the Schuyler-Industry district, Instead of just from Industry. Judge David Stoverink also told the regional school superintendent, Bob Baumann, that if the petition is not amended, the regional school board must turn it down. Baumann says he'll call a meeting of the regional board this week to give them background. Then he'll wait to see if another detachment petition is filed.
