Tensions mount over Middleton school withdrawal proposal
The committee to study the feasibility of withdrawing from the Authorized Regional Enrollment Area (AREA) Agreement seek to have a final draft of their findings and a minority report before its next session on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. in the Middleton Municipal Building.
A draft proposes two options: entering into a new agreement to send Middleton students in grades 7 to 12 to the Gov. Wentworth Regional School District in Wolfeboro or withdrawing all students from Farmington. The latter option is contingent on Middleton residents approving to build a school to educate students through grade 6, according to the draft report.
Joel Chagnon, who represents Farmington School Board on the committee, said he’s heard from “a lot of residents” who don’t want Middleton students to leave, especially since the loss of revenue will affect Farmington taxpayers.
After holding two joint sessions in the past, including one with members from the N.H. Department of Education, the two school boards will conduct separate efforts to inform voters and to address concerns from residents.
