There’s a new complication in efforts to shrink the number of regional offices of education around the state.
Original plans had called for Sangamon County’s regional office to be combined with Menard County.
But now the State Journal-Register reports an 11th-hour change would also add Cass, Morgan and Scott counties to the office.
Sangamon County Regional Superintendent Jeff Vose says the move will put a strain on his office… and on Sangamon County taxpayers.
A final decision by the state board of education is expected Friday.
