Education board to vote on disbanding WNWSU

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A school supervisory union that serves half a dozen central Vermont towns would be dissolved under a proposal up for a vote Tuesday.

State Education officials say the Windsor Northwest Supervisory Union suffers from sagging enrollments, among other problems.  The student population from the schools in Bethel, Rochester, Stockbridge, Pittsfield, Hancock and Granville total 466. The State Board of Education is set to vote on a plan that would redistribute the schools to three surrounding supervisory unions.
     
While they agree that changes are needed, superintendents of the four supervisory unions argue that further study is needed, especially when it comes to including Orange SW and Washington South in the re-distribution.
     
State Education Officials say, If approved, the transition would take several years to accomplish and would save money in the long run.
