Carlton School Board lukewarm to Wrenshall appeal

The Carlton school board discussed a new letter from the Wrenshall school board regarding a merger between the districts during Monday’s committee of the whole meeting. Consolidation ideas have been on again, off again for decades, with this being the latest, this time initiated by Wrenshall. The letter was signed by all six members of the Wrenshall school board, and contains no preconditions or specifics, only a request for discussion with both school boards in attendance.

Reaction to the idea by the Carlton board was desultory. Board clerk Sue Karp was the first to express reservations.
