A-C Central/PORTA Consolidation Proposal Fails
A proposition to consolidate the A-C Central and PORTA school districts failed in Tuesday's primary.
In order for it to pass, voters in both districts had to approve the proposition. PORTA voters passed the measure, but A-C Central voters did not. Therefore, the consolidation will not go forward.
The final numbers were:
A-C Central voters: 443 YES; 607 NO
PORTA voters: 1,786 YES; 548 NO
The two school districts include portions of Sangamon, Morgan, Cass, and Menard counties.
