School District Consolidations in Cambria County

I grew up 1 mile from Cambria county, so I am pretty familiar with the general layout. Anyway, my wife and I bought a little over 4 acres of ground near a rail-trail and trout stream and are building this summer. We're both in education (but work in two different counties) and are aware of a study by the state legislator that looked at different school district consolidations.

We've heard that Blacklick Valley will go into Central Cambria, Portage with Cambria Heights, and Ferndale & Conemaugh Valley may also consolidate. We're building in the Blacklick Valley SD and are aware that each grade level is about 50 kids and, according to the state study, a merger with Central Cambria would save a little over $2,000,000 a year; considering this it seems inevitable that it will happen, but we really don't know.

I was just curious, since we're building in the area and will be startign a family soon, if anybody knows anything about this. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated!
