Post-Merger Tips

The periodic tips about post-merger activities, posted to this page, will serve as a resource for supervisory union administrators and staff serving districts that are merging as a result of both Act 46 of 2015 and earlier, incorporated legislation. These documents are considered working documents. We welcome suggestions for additions and corrections as supervisory unions and newly unified districts transition to full operations.


Not all of this information will apply to every scenario. For example, a supervisory union that is becoming a supervisory district will perform tasks that are different from one that will maintain or expand its supervisory union structure. There also may be variations based on how quickly the new district will become fully operational after the vote.
