Dongola High School makes more adjustments to its student schedule for the 2024-25 academic year

One of the smallest high schools in Illinois is sending more of its students to another district for the next academic year.

The Dongola Unit School District Number 66 Board of Education voted Tuesday night for its 9th, 10th and 11th grade students to attend Vienna High School next year.

The Board decided to communicate individually with 12th grade students and their families about their high school options.

Ninth and 10th grade students at Dongola have already been attending Vienna High School for some core courses during this current academic year.

Dongola has been sending its 11th and 12th grade students to Shawnee Community College the past two academic years.

Dongola has been dealing with a teacher shortage which has left some core academic courses without an instructor.

The Illinois High School Association web page reports Dongola High School has an enrollment of 69 students.
