Judge to mediate Belvidere, N. Boone's special-education dispute

This dispute appears even more interesting in the fact that Superintendent Houselog is the former superintendent of North Boone.

North Boone School District sued Belvidere School District last week, alleging Belvidere was illegally trying to withdraw itself from the cooperative, leaving North Boone special education students without the cooperative’s help in the 2010-11 school year.

“We are not withdrawing and have made no indication of any interest in leaving the co-op,”[Belvidere Superintendent] Houselog said.

[North Boone Superintendent] Brodnax said. “There’s a state process that is in place for dismantling or withdrawing from a co-op, and we believe that process is not being followed. It’s a one- to two-year process, and Belvidere has tried to make all (that) happen in February.”
