Run for the New School Board | Final Report | FAQ | VT Digger Article
After months of study, a committee of 20 citizens of Essex Junction, Essex Town and Westford have unanimously proposed creating a unified school district among our three communities. A unified school district is a wise choice because it will enable greater educational opportunities for our students at a lower administrative cost, help stabilize property tax rates over time, and preserve our great schools.
As a community member of Essex Junction, Essex Town and Westford, you will have the opportunity to vote on school district unification on November 3. At the same time, candidates that would serve on a new board, should the proposal be adopted, need to be elected. If you are interested in running for this new 10-member Unified Union School District Board, click here.
Please come to a community forum to learn more and discuss this important proposal with your neighbors!
