Colchester School District Community Open House Session #3
The Colchester School District would like to invite the community to the third in a series of open houses to foster communications about our educational system. Session 3 will be held December 11th at the Burnham Library in the community room from 6 to 7:30pm.
The focus of this conversation will be educational efficiencies.
Superintendent Larry Waters will be providing information on the proposal to consolidate the two K-2 schools, Union Memorial and Porters Point, into a new Pre-K – 1 Early Education Center. We would like to hear what the community has to say about this proposal and discuss if this is a viable path forward to cost containment.
Along the same efficiency path, mergers with neighboring districts are also being considered as a cost containment option. There are already education relationships with towns in the Islands and there may be opportunities for efficiencies in a relationship with the Winooski School District. Again, the district is interested in starting these important conversations with the Colchester community.
