There was a fair amount of public representation from the City of Clarence at Wednesday night’s R-IV School Board meeting to voice concerns about the possibility of merging the district’s two elementary schools into a new one at the South Shelby location.
   Public Comment
   During the public comment portion of the meeting, Tim Farmer spoke on behalf of the Clarence Community Betterment Association, a group that Farmer explained works for improvements and for economic development in Clarence.
   He said they were concerned with the possibility of taking the Clarence Elementary School out of Clarence. “It’s very important for us to keep the elementary in Clarence, but we do want to voice our strong support to build an elementary building in Shelbina,” he said.
   Farmer stated that the Missouri Association of Rural Educators (M.A.R.E) website and pulled some information off of the website. Farmer said that according to the website, student achievement is higher at an elementary in each community. He also noted that it said there are lower test scores where consolidation occurs. He said with elementary schools in each community there is greater involvement with students with less disruptive behavior. He also said that the website stated that there is greater parental involvement and the students are safer because of being closer to law enforcement. Farmer said that all students being in one location puts the students in more danger in case of emergency.
   “M.A.R.E.’s research shows an undeniable link between the loss of a school in a rural community and a subsequent decline in community population,” he said.
