The problem of this thesis was to obtain as nearly as possible the essential facts and data concerning The Evolution of Schools in Ellis County, Kansas . The period covered in this school evolution dates back to the year 1868 when the legislature defined the boundaries in conformity with a petition presented to the Governor by the citizens in the fall of 1867, asking for organization, to the present year of 1950. Here is a period of eighty-two years during which time Ellis County has developed educationally from the crude school of that day to its present modern school system. It is hoped that the data compiled pertaining to this period and as presented in this study will serve as a permanent record for the information and inspiration for anyone interested in the schools and their evolution of Ellis County.
