Board of Ed Voted to Approve Restructuring

By Kathy Brown.

Nine members of the Regional School District #17 attended the Board of Education regular meeting tonight, Tuesday, March 6, 2018. The two missing members tonight were Killingworth’s Joel D’Angelo and Suzanne Sack. There were many other items on the agenda. Of the nine members present, one voted no, and the remainder voted yes to the proposed restructuring, which would close Haddam Elementary School in the 2019-20 school year. In the proposal, Burr Elementary School and Killingworth Elementary School will house the district’s Kindergarten through third grade. There will be an Intermediate School housing 4th and 5th grade set up within HKMS in Killingworth, where there will be separate programming for grades 6-8 in the traditional Middle School. The high school will remain unchanged. As was said more than once at the meeting tonight, the work doesn’t end tonight; it’s just the beginning.

    Can you indicate who voted “no” so I can make sure I vote for that person during the next election. For the 9 individuals that voted “yes”. You will never get my vote again.

    Logical well thought out process. Thank you RSD17 BOE for not being afraid to make hard important decisions to ensure keeping quality in our school system as at a reasonable cost as possible. Particularly with what is going on at the state level regarding funding education!
