The Edinburg and Valley school districts are one step closer to merging.

The school reorganization committee has approved the plan to combine the two school districts.

It will now go to a public vote in both school districts on November 24th.

There will be two community meetings on November 17th and November 19th to discuss the plan.

The reason for the consolidation is based on student enrollment and difficulties with teacher recruitment and retention.

If the plan goes through, the new district would operate three schools, one each in Edinburg, Hoople and Crystal.
