The appellants seek reversal of a decision made by the Sioux City Community School District board removing from consideration a change to the structure of high schools in order to reduce costs.
The district faced overcrowding issues and were exploring options to alleviate it; one option given was to restructuring. The grades were divided as follows: K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. On Sept 27, 1989, the board voted to "reject for further study the conversion of the high school into some other kind of educational unit at this time".
The appellants contend this decision was made arbitrarily without sufficient study. There is no precedent for the proposition that a school board be required to research and gather data on an option that a small minority or none of the board members would vote for.
The decision made by the Sioux City Community School District board is affirmed.
