CONCORD, Vt. (AP) - Residents of a Vermont town are voting for a second time on whether to close their community’s tiny high school.

The Concord School Board scheduled a ballot revote on whether to close the high school on Tuesday.

Townspeople voted in April, to close the school, but residents petitioned for a revote.

Superintendent Brian Rayburn said at least three teachers would not return if the school stays open and that recruiting teachers in June would be difficult. If the school stays open new contracts would have to be negotiated with the teachers.

Concord residents have grappled for years about whether to keep their high school, which this year has 65 students.
