Twin Rivers Unification
School consolidation is not new, but how many times have you been able to look over a district’s shoulder and watch the process unfold?
Now you can.
NSBA’s National Affiliate Program and American School Board Journal are collaborating online and in print to study consolidation and its impact. The focus of this effort is the new Twin Rivers Unified School District, located on the outskirts of Sacramento, Calif.
Twin Rivers unifies three former elementary districts and a high school district into a single pre-K through 12 entity that services approximately 30,000 students. Through this project, we are examining what led to the consolidation and how the new district is dealing with various issues and challenges that merger presents. At the end, our plan is to have a useful tool that will help others that face similar circumstances.
Over the next several months, you can read regular updates about the process, hear what the individuals involved think, and meet key leaders face-to-face.
