CONCORD, Vt. (AP) - Residents of a Vermont town that is preparing to close its tiny high school are asking for a chance to reconsider the decision.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/1RAebGE ) residents in Concord, about 38 miles northeast of Montpelier, filed a petition Monday with 149 signatures seeking the revote.

Last month’s vote to close the high school, which has 65 students, passed 285 to 210.

Following the April 28 vote to close the school, every teacher at Concord High School was given a reduction-in-force notice. Current Concord staffers do not have contracts for the coming year and new contracts would have to be negotiated if the school reopens.

Concord has voted more than 10 times to close the school.
