Voters in Stickney and Corsica have overwhelmingly voted to consolidate their school districts.
The proposal gained 80 percent approval in Corsica and 84 percent approval in Stickney in Tuesday's election.
The consolidation prompted by declining enrollment will take effect July 1, 2015. Students in grades K-6 will attend classes in Stickney, and those in grades 7-12 will be in Corsica.
The two school districts have had sports cooperatives since 2009 and also have shared teachers and programs in that time period.
