Plans to consolidate the elementary schools in the Rockridge School District are moving forward and will be on the ballot this spring.

Under the proposal, school buildings in Andalusia, Taylor Ridge and Illinois City would be replaced with one new, $15 million school built near the high school in Edgington. The current elementary schools are about 60 years old.  

A citizens' group, Rockridge Forward, has been studying the issue. Chairman Tom Parchert says the school board approved putting the issue on the March 18 ballot, which will ask voters to approve bonds to pay for it. 

The new building would be centrally located and Parchert says the farthest any student would have to travel to school is 15 miles.
