Carlton Wrenshall: Schools 'pause' merger wrangle
February 12, 2021
The on-again, off-again talks between the Carlton and Wrenshall school districts regarding consolidation are officially off again. Superintendents and school board members agreed last week that it was time for a “pause” in current negotiations regarding a merger that has been kicked around for more than a half-century.
The pause marks an end to a flurry of consolidation maneuvers in the past two years that saw the school boards agreeing on a two-site plan that would utilize the South Terrace elementary school in Carlton for lower grades and the school in Wrenshall for a high school.
