How school district merge will work

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Yesterday residents in Essex, Westford, and Essex Junction voted to merge into a single school district.  The towns will go from five school boards to one and will oversee ten schools.

Supporters say the communities will see significant savings through greater efficiency, and reap the benefits of tax breaks offered by the legislature.  Voters also picked representatives for that new unified school board.

Kim Gleason of Essex won a three year term and joins us to discuss how this merger will actually work.
