Roxton ISD May Consolidate

The Roxton ISD in Lamar County announced Wednesday that it may consolidate with another school district. The announcement was made in the Roxton Progress newspaper. It states that financial problems in the district are creating "an increasingly deep and unsustainable budget shortfall.”

The ISD is reportedly in talks with at least two neighboring districts. The question of a merger could find its way onto a November ballot.
