PLAINVIEW, Neb. (AP) - Five public school districts in northeast Nebraska are considering merging, but so far officials are meeting in private to discuss the possibilities.

The Norfolk Daily News says (https://bit.ly/1lAGGBI ) reporters were turned away from Wednesday’s meeting of representatives from the Bloomfield, Creighton, Osmond, Plainview and Wausa districts.

None of the districts sent enough board members to the meeting to make it automatic that the meeting be public under state law.

Plainview News Publisher Brook Curtiss plans to file a complaint with the Nebraska Attorney General’s office over the closed meetings.

Plainview Superintendent Richard Alt says all of the districts involved will consider whether to make future meetings open to the public.

Minutes from the closed meetings are posted online afterward.
