Rural School Districts

contributed by Carolyn Jones Bettis

Larry Pfeiffer, Regional Superintendent, Macoupin County Schools, that his office has files of rural schools after 1915 and prior to that date, the records were kept in the individual schools and would probably be located in one of the nine school districts currently in place today in Macoupin County.

District No. leads to an address below this table for each District.

Check with the Regional Superintendent's office for available records and times the office is open. (or closed for some unknown reason). 217/854-4016. 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

His office and the nine school disricts welcomes persons looking for information of these past schools, teachers, students, researchers, etc, who are interested in such data. They welcome personal visits or requests by mail and will make every attempt to comply with all requests in a timely manner.

Specific dates of operation for individual rural schools are not available. Requests will have to be made and the respective office will conduct a search and forward a reply of their findings.
