Mill River Community Members,
The Mill River Schools have been developing and discussing a concept for the future of the Mill River Unified Union School District for several months, and have recently engaged in presentations and discussion about the concept at informational sessions in Clarendon, Shrewsbury, Wallingford, and Tinmouth.
You can access slides from those presentations at this link:
At the next meeting of the MRUUSD School Board, on May 2nd at 6:30 pm at MRUHS, the members of the board will be discussing the vision concept as a board as well as asking questions of administration about the proposals. The Board intends to take a warned vote at that meeting regarding whether to proceed with the vision concept as designed.
Please note: part of the vision concept discussion has involved whether or not to have 6th grade students join the 7th and 8th grade students in attending middle school at Mill River Union High School rather than in their local elementary schools. However, that topic will not be decided on during the board discussion next week. The question of 6th grade location will be discussed and decided separately at a later date.
If the topic of future vision for the MRUUSD interests you please consider attending the MRUUSD Board Meeting to observe the Board’s discussions on Wednesday, May 2nd, at 6:30 pm. The meeting is scheduled to take place in the MRUHS Library.
