Middleton residents asked to weigh in on proposed school
The Middleton Budget Committee and the Middleton School Board will hold a public hearing at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Old Town Hall to discuss the proposed budget.
Middleton residents must decide whether to agree to withdraw from Farmington schools, approve a tuition agreement with the Gov. Wentworth district and vote on a bond to build the new school, which requires a 60 percent majority to pass.
Per the withdrawal plan, all four articles must pass or the community's students would remain in Farmington schools, according to school board member Ken Garry.
After studying the issue for the past six months, Middleton officials proposed a phased withdrawal from Farmington. As a result, grades 7 through 12 would attend Gov. Wentworth after July 1, 2015. The remaining students in pre-kindergarten through grade 6 would move into the new school the following year, if approved by residents.
