After two years of research the Hampton - Scotland Ad Hoc Committee on Interdistrict Cost Sharing has submitted their Report to the Boards of Education for consideration. Town Meetings for public input were held in both Municipalities. Additionally, the Report can be found on the Town Websites.
With eroding student populations and declining Connecticut Educational Cost Sharing Grants, it’s time to support the concept of a Collaborative Agreement to strengthen a new School Format. Local control is maintained through our Boards of Education. Three members from each Board of Ed will make up the New Board. All amendments moving forward will be made by the Board of Ed’s.
Can Hampton still afford the present status of our very small School? Yes, for a while.
Is it the best platform of Educational and Social preparation? I say NO.
You can be a child and educational advocate and still have different opinions on how to accomplish our goals.
Most importantly please vote on Tuesday, October 11th, Noon to 8pm at the Town Hall!
