Montague Center School will be Consolidated
(wfcr) - A group of parents and community members have been given several months to come up with a plan to keep the Montague Center School open. The Gill Montague regional district's school committee voted 8-to-1, the week of 12/10, to approve a consolidation plan that by September would close the elementary school, which is K-3. The move comes as the district struggles with limited resources and a state designation as "under-performing." Superintendent Kenneth Rocke says the school committee agreed to allow the group to develop a proposal for how to keep the school open. He says there are a number of models that have potential.

Under the consolidation plan, most of the district's elementary school students would move to Sheffield Elementary, including 1st and 2nd grade students from Hillchrest School. Rocke says the State Department of Education has expressed approval of the consolidation plan
