Some parents in Montpelier are urging the school board to save the boy’s high school hockey program from extinction.
Last month school Superintendent Stephen Metcalf gave the board a budget that would cut hockey and a high school dance program in addition to several education positions.
Parent Jerry Goss says the 16-member team is having an excellent year despite a losing record.
But, Montpelier schools are facing a decline in enrollment.
Still, the board is trying to craft a budget with a 6 percent increase in per pupil spending.
