Letter to the editor: ACSD should join merger committee

Recently both ANWSD and MAUSD school boards voted to adopt a motion to create a Merger Study Committee inviting each other and any other interested school districts. 
During this process, I have advocated many times to have ACSD included in this study committee. All our students and taxpayers deserve to have a wide range of options considered. All three districts are struggling to maintain programming and whether to keep grade schools open.
All of Addison County studying how to best use our collective resources may keep more of our grade schools functioning in our small towns, and give our high school students the range of programming they deserve at a reasonable cost to all our taxpayers. 
My hope is that ACSD’s board will formally consider joining the Merger Study Committee so no students in Addison County are left out of this learning opportunity.
