— The Oskaloosa School Board this week discussed the idea of forming a "super league" out of about five athletic leagues in northeast Kansas, said Supt. Jim White.

With the existing system, schools with growing enrollments still play teams from smaller schools.

"With the super structure, they could move to another league," White said.

For example, he said, Oskaloosa schools participate in the Delaware Valley League. If a growth in enrollment gave Oskaloosa an advantage over other schools in the same league, its membership would transfer to another league.

The super league still is in the preliminary planning stage. White said the board will decide at its December meeting whether to participate, and the super league could get started as soon as next year.

In other business, board members:

Completed a survey for a Kansas State University doctoral student.

Approved the district policy handbook, which has been under revision for about a year.

Designated Jim Ware, school board president, to represent the board at the Kansas Association of School Boards' annual convention Dec. 1-3 in Wichita.

Approved a request from the Oskaloosa Recreation Commission to build a baseball-softball field behind the school complex, west and slightly north of the football field. The commission will hold a public hearing to discuss the field at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Mutual Savings Building.
