By Mrs. Ruth Kuper (Pointer Correspondent) Petitions for consolidation into a high school district, submitted by the present school districts of Kapowsin, Roy, Spanaway, Elk Plairi, Clover Creek, Lacamas and Rocky Ridge, have been approved by the Pierce county committee on school district organization and by the state board of education. The petitions were submitted in response to the request of directors of Union High S,chool District No. 205, that the sentiment of the residents of the several school districts concerned be shown, as a preliminary step towards consolidation for the purpose of building a high school. In accord with school law, elates have been set for hearings in each of the districts involved: To determine the view of the majority of voters, to explain statute provisions governing such a step and to determine if the districts desire to vote on the proposition at the regular · M arc h 5 . sc h ooI e Iection,
