The Board of Guardians and Poor Law Unions were abolished following the Local Government Act 1929. In 1871, the Trefeglwys School Board was responsible for Gleiniant School, Llawr-y-glyn School and Staylittle School in the parish of Trefeglwys. The Llangurig School Board, Montgomeryshire, was responsible for Llangurig Village School, Cwmbelan School and Pant-mawr School in the parish of Llangurig. In 1902, County Councils took over the responsibility of School Boards.
