Budget Wrestling in the Gill-Montague School District
(2008-06-03)
(wfcr) - Cuts and closings. For several years that's been the buzz among parents, school committee members, and educators in the rural Gill-Montague Regional School District. But this year the talk turned to action. A school is shutting its doors at the end of the month, and not re-opening in the fall. We continue our series on schools and budgets by looking at some of the challenges this and other rural school districts are facing. They're juggling rising costs, lower student enrollments, and town budgets with multiple priorities. As WFCR's Tina Antolini reports, there's no easy answer for how to educate the districts children, and come in within budget. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
