Area schools are examining if Heritage may be looking for a new co-op for football.
The Shiloh School Board is looking at the possibility of co-oping with Tri-County for football.
Superintendent John Wheatley said the board voted to explore the possibility of a co-op with Tri-County at the meeting last week.
The co-op would take place next school year.
Heritage Superintendent Allen Hall said the East Central Panthers co-op would end if the Shiloh district decides to coop with Tri-County.
Hall said Heritage had contacted Villa Grove to see if they would like to co-op with Heritage.
"Villa Grove is the school Heritage is looking at but it is still in the early stages," he said.
Hall said Heritage would be open to co-op multiple sports with Villa Grove but nothing had been decided.
Villa Grove Superintendent Steve Poznic said the district has been contacted about the possibility of an athletic cooperative agreement for next year. The Villa Grove board planned to discuss the issue at their meeting on Jan. 28.
Hall said the ECP baseball co-op could be maintained even if the football co-op with Shiloh is dissolved. He said that decision has yet to be made.
Hall said Heritage needs to co-op with a school to maintain a football program.
