Monday, January 21, 2013 - Updated: 5:49 PM

ST. JOHNSVILLE-- The St. Johnsville and Oppenheim-Ephratah central schools will continue their shared sports program this spring as the two districts transition into a single, merged district for the start of the 2013-14 school year.

On Dec. 11, Oppenheim-Ephratah residents voted in favor of a binding referendum, approving a merger with St. Johnsville.

Residents in St. Johnsville approved the merger last December.

Prior to the merger vote, the two school districts had entered into agreements that allowed students from both schools to participate in the other's fall and winter sports programs. Under the spring agreement, Oppenheim-Ephratah students will be allowed to participate in the St. Johnsville modified and varsity baseball and softball programs at no charge to the Oppenheim-Ephratah students.

The Oppenheim-Ephratah Board of Education approved the agreement Thursday, Jan. 17. The St. Johnsville board approved it Jan. 10.
