The upcoming Act 46 Vote explained

The upcoming Act 46 Vote explained


Black River High School & Middle School


To clarify rumored confusion, here is a short explanation of the upcoming Act 46 votes.

The Southern TRSU Group - Andover, Baltimore, Cavendish and Chester voters will be asked to vote for or against creating the Green Mountain Unified District - an Act 46 Regional Education District (RED)

If ALL 4 towns mentioned above vote FOR the proposed plan, Chester-Andover Elementary, Cavendish Elementary and Green Mountain will become the Green Mountain Unified District.
If ANY one of the towns vote AGAINST the proposed plan, a new Act 46 committee will be formed to develop another plan. 

The Northern TRSU Group - Mount Holly and Ludlow voters will be asked to vote for or against dissolving U#39, closing Black River and sending 7th-12th graders to Mill River.

If BOTH towns vote FOR the proposed plan - Black River will close, Mount Holly Elementary and Ludlow Elementary will stay open and 7th-12th grade students will attend Mill River

If either town votes AGAINST the proposed plan, a new plan will be developed.

The new plan could be one already discussed - see attached Act 46 Fact Sheet created by Superintendent Meg Powden - or it could be a completely new innovative plan yet to be determined.
