Adams County Board approves ROE merger with Jacksonville

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The Regional Office of Education for Adams and Pike Counties could soon be merging with the office in Jacksonville.

The Adams County Board approved a resolution Tuesday night approving the consolidation.

The regional office in Jacksonville serves Brown, Cass, Morgan, and Scott counties.

Each county board is required to approve a resolution supporting the merger.

A law approved last year will reduce the number of regional education offices to save an estimated $1.5 million each year.

"There are 44 regional offices right now and by July 1 of 2015, there needs to be only 35, so there were nine smaller regional offices that either have to merge with a larger one or some of them are merging together," said Adams/Pike Regional Superintendent, Debbie Niederhauser.

The Pike County Board will be asked to approve the measure next month.
