Chisum, Roxton ISDs on Track to Consolidate

The Chisum and Roxton ISDs in Lamar County will merge – if voters say it’s OK next year. Chisum ISD voted Monday night to consolidate with Roxton. Back in July Roxton announced it would look to consolidate with a neighboring district, citing QUOTE an increasingly deep and unsustainable budget shortfall.

Monday’s measure by the Chisum ISD allows the district to put the question to voters next May. Chisum has already hosted a public information session on the merger. According to the Paris News, it plans to hold the next one on Oct. 15.
