Now that we have all dug out from under the early December snowstorm, we’d like to remind everyone that the 3rd District Open House is still scheduled for this evening at 6pm in the Burnham Library.
Superintendent Larry Waters will be providing information on a 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.
Hope to see you there!
