HURLEY, SD -
Voters in Hurley and Viborg headed to the polls Tuesday to decide the future of their schools.
In Hurley, 92 percent of voters (238) were in favor of consolidating, 8 percent (20) were against.
In Viborg, 64 percent (264) were in favor of the move and 36 percent (147) were against it.
Under the plan, pre-K through fourth grade students and ninth grade through 12th grade students will be in Viborg. The fifth grade through eighth grade classes will be in Hurley.
The consolidation will take effect on July 1, 2012.
Officials say the next step is to hold an election for the combined school board, which will begin the task of preparing for the transition.
