MIDDLEBURY — Local lawmakers on Monday were unsure whether a sweeping bill calling for expansion of public school districts would receive final legislative approval before the 2014 session concludes in about three weeks.
The bill in question is H.883, which allows the state’s current 282 school to voluntarily realign into around 50 expanded K-12 districts. Each school district would be governed by a single board and operate on a single budget.
VERGENNES — In a packed high school library that has become characteristic of recent board meetings, the Vergennes Union High School board on Monday evening warned a new budget that will force administrators to lay off staff.
The spending proposal totals $9,417,197, which is $316,725 less than the budget Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters rejected on Town Meeting Day. It is also less than the budget for the current fiscal year.
