Superintendent Larry Pfeiffer from ROE # 40 put together an excellent video explaining School Annexation and Detachment. To watch this informative video please click here. Detachments are a form of reorganization where a portion of one school district is incorporated into one or more other school districts. This may consist of one or more families or an area within the district wanting to attend another district.
