Pelham leaders consider separate school system

Posted: Updated:

The Pelham City Council could look at forming a separate school system.  The Council meets tonight at 7, and on the agenda, a resolution that would authorize the mayor to enter into a contract with Decision Resources, LLC.

If passed, Decision Resources would then complete "a feasibility study to asses the financial resources that would be available to fund a separate school system for the City of Pelham."
 A work session begins at 6PM at City Hall in the Council Conference Room.  The Council meeting follows at 7PM in the Council Chambers.
