The coordinator will dig into the details of what would have to happen for the two schools to merge, including educational standards, teacher contracts and licensure, transportation, education funding and state and congressional approvals.
The Select Board on Wednesday afternoon set the date for a special town meeting to vote on the next steps toward a school district merger with Stamford, Vt.
The special town meeting will take place on Wednesday, July 31, at 6:30 p.m. at Clarksburg School.
A full presentation of the findings will be made in Clarksburg on May 15 at 6:30 p.m.; the committee and stakeholders will meet with PCG representatives next week for a four-hour workshop to go through the findings and prepare for the May meeting.
With 59 registered voters in attendance at the special town meeting, the decision was unanimous to begin talks with Stamford, Vt., that could create Massachusetts' first interstate school district. The entire process took barely 15 minutes.
The school has mailed out a brochure explaining the reasons for exploring an interstate school district, including providing more educational opportunities, access to a full-day preschool and expanded space.
