On Wednesday, July 18th there will be a State Board of Education public meeting in Newark, Vermont at 9:30 am regarding the state’s proposed plan to force a merger of Swanton, Highgate, Franklin, and MVU into a unified district with one board (with proportional representation), eliminating local school boards. This will be the last chance to give input regarding this plan. If you do not want to see our school merged, please join in showing your support for our school and school board by attending this meeting. Being present at the meeting sends the message that our school is critically important to our community. We will be meeting at 6:30 am in the Franklin School parking lot to coordinate transportation and leaving at 6:45 am. Please bring water and lunch as there may not be anything available for sale. Thank you.
