A US School district which doesn't seem notable. Dunc_Harris| 20:10, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: Additionally, the Revolutionary War Wayne has a lot of things named after him around the country. I once taught at Wayne Country Day School. It's half the continent away from Wayne County, Michigan, or this Wayne Township in Indiana, or Fort Wayne. Also, the article is misnamed. Also, people in Australia adding the names of all the suburbs of Canberra have even less interest in this, I'm afraid, than I do in those. Geogre 21:51, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • In Indiana, townships are administrative divisions of unincorporated parts of counties. This article doesn't say that this one is notable, it's factually wrong cause it says it's a school district, and it doesn't reflect the naming conventions. Delete.--Samuel J.

  • Comment. This gets complicated. At a minimum, the title's got to change. "Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township"[1] is different than "Wayne Township"[2], although the township used to manage the schools before the school district was split off. I suppose an argument could be made that one article could cover both at Wayne Township, Indianapolis (or Wayne Township, Marion County, Indiana) (there are three other Wayne Townships in the US, one of which is also in Indiana), with a redir from the school district's full name, although the boundaries of the two bodies are no longer identical. If not, this should be moved to the SD name if kept with this content. If it stays just Wayne Township, it should cover the services it still provides--"township assistance, formerly known as poor relief; EMS and fire protection[3]; parks; maintenance, preservation and restoration of cemeteries; assessing property for tax purposes; weed control; and paying livestock claims."[4].
