Farmington school official: Middleton withdrawal would be 'catastrophic'
"It's seemed to balloon out of control," Vittorioso said. After studying the issue for the past six months, Middleton officials believe it is feasible to conduct a phased withdrawal from Farmington. It proposes to send grades 7-12 to Gov. Wentworth Regional School District in Wolfeboro after July 1, 2015. The remaining students in pre-kindergarten through grade 6 would move into the new school — which also must be approved by voters in March — the following year.
Joel Chagnon, who also served with Thivierge on the withdrawal committee, said it remains unclear how Middleton residents feel about separating from Farmington, join Gov. Wentworth and build their own $6.5 million school — which requires a 60 percent majority — in town.
Additionally, according to the tuition agreement with Gov. Wentworth, residents in that district — which includes Brookfield, Effingham, New Durham, Ossipee, Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro — must also agree to accept Middleton's students.
