From the December 17 Tokushima Newspaper:
During the Tokushima Prefectural Board of Education AGM held on the 16th, a plan was unveiled to reform and merge schools in the Naruto and Mima municipalities to create two new schools. According to the plan, Naruto Daiichi High School and Naruto Technical High Schools (both in the Naruto City area) would be reformed and merged by the year 2012, and Sadamitsu Technical High School in Tsurugi would be merged with Mima Commercial High School in Mima City by the year 2014.
The new school created proposed by the merger of Naruto Daiichi and Naruto Technichal is set to use the current grounds of Naruto Technical and will be run as a prefecturally funded and administered school. Plans also show that it will be the first school in the prefecure to have a sports course (one class) and an intergrated science course (five classes) available for students.
