CONCORD, Vt. (AP) - Voters in the Vermont town of Concord are casting ballots about the future of the community’s tiny high school.
Tuesday’s special election will decide whether the town will keep open the high school portion of the Concord school or pay tuition to send the community’s high school students to other schools.
The high school has 65 students.
Last month residents petitioned for the vote. Over the years, Concord residents have considered closing the high school a number of times, including a 2011 vote that failed by 20 votes.
Proponents of closing the high school say it costs too much and there aren’t enough opportunities for students.
But junior Baylee Olden tells the Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1A6R9MM ) she likes the personal attention she gets in Concord.
