About 200 Lyndon Institute students are petitioning the school to not go through with a series of staff cuts.
Last week, the private high school that serves many communities in the Northeast Kingdom announced plans to cut five teachers and an administrator.
Headmaster Rick Hilton says the cuts are necessary because of declining enrollment.
He says the cuts will be in driver education, international English language education, technical education, special education and visual arts. He says programs will not be affected.
But many students don’t want to see that happen.
Senior Railynne Warren says the students want to show they have a voice.
