Oldham-Ramona and Rutland to Consolidate School Districts in 2023

The number of school districts in South Dakota will decrease by at least one in 2023. In a special election Tuesday, voters in the Oldham-Ramona and Rutland school districts approved consolidating their districts. The vote was 143 for and 117 against in Oldham-Ramona and 124 for and 117 against in Rutland. Consolidation requires majority approval from each participant district, so had just four people in Rutland changed their minds from yea to nay, or if just eight naysayers among the 215 registered Rutland voters who stayed home had come to the polls, consolidation would have failed. Turnout in Rutland was 53%; turnout in Oldham-Ramona was 49%.
