West River Modified Union Education District to Organize

The legal voters of the West River Modified Union Education District, comprising the voters of the Towns of Brookline, Jamaica, Newfane, and Townshend for prekindergarten through Grade 12 and the Town of Windham for Grades 7-12 will meet at the Leland and Gray Middle High School in Townshend, VT, on Monday June 26th at 7:00 pm.

Immediately following this Special Meeting, the West River Modified Union Education District will organize and elect its very first officers.

“There is excitement around creating a new school district and further unifying the Leland and Gray towns,” stated Windham Central Supervisory Union Superintendent Bill Anton.
The creation of the West River Modified Union Education District is the result of the work of the Leland & Gray Towns Act 46 Study Committee.  The elected officials who will make up the new school district board have been meeting informally as a gathering of citizens.
The members of the new board are excited and ready to continue the work of the study committee.  Taking the plan for the new district from the 10,000 foot level to the operational level is challenging but rewarding work,” according to Joe Winrich, Study Committee Chair.
