Biographical / Historical
The Adair County (Missouri) School District was created in 1853 under the Kelly Act which established the country district system in Missouri. By 1968, consolidations had left the county with only three sub-districts so the County District was dissolved and three independent districts were created: Novinger R-I, Brashear R-II and Kirksville R-III.
