Woodbury’s vote on whether to close an elementary school will have broader implications than whether the 1914 red shingle and clapboard building stays open.
Voters will be asked today whether to close Woodbury Elementary School, where around 34 students are expected in September, down from 43 this year.
The Burlington Free Press says voters will also be asked whether the town should open the door to paying tuition to private schools at all grade levels.
They’ll be asked if they want the town to withdraw from the Hazen Union School District, a multi-town school located in Hardwick. A "yes" vote could be the first step toward tuitioning Woodbury students at the secondary level.
