Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - February 19, 1962, Bennington, Vermont Board sets april i target a do nothing is most expensive answer Union school planning Board finds by Elizabeth Dwyer with a final target Date of april i in mind members of the Union High school planning Board have been meeting weekly to evaluate the intensive work being done by sub committees. The Board made up of delegates appointed by eight school districts in Southern Bennington county has since last fall been engaged in a thorough study of the problems and is expected to Complete its work in the next few weeks and make a report which will include general recommendations for a Union High school proposal to be presented to voters in the various districts this Spring. At a meeting last thursday the Board reviewed the tentative recommendations of the sub committees on organization curriculum finance and publicity. Board chairman or. Arthur Faris of Shaftsbury reported that the organization and site committee had met with Rupert Spencer director of the division of administration of the Vermont education department who had approved several Sites under investigation. Recommendations Only or. Faris noted that the function of the planning Board is to make recommendations Only. The final decision in All matters will be made by the directors of a Union school District when and if it is approved by voters. Barton Jenks chairman of the finance committee offered a detailed report of the work done by his committee in translating a Good Well balanced High school program into a building including costs for capital expenditure and operation. At thursdays meeting the planning Board gave unanimous approval to a report of the finance committee summing up the prob Lem and the solution offered by a Union High school. This report follows text of finance report a the finance committee of the area planning Board has been doing intensive research for several months on school costs in our area. Data has been culled from school districts As far North As Vergennes and South to Lanesboro including Hoosick Falls and Brattleboro. A at a meeting feb. 8 the committee went to work setting up specific Cost factors based on a 900-Pupil capacity regional High school which the planning Board endorsed feb. 6 the Marshall report last year showed a projection for this area indicating a combined High school enrolment of about 900 pupils by 1970. Preceding this months of study by the members who come from the several school districts went into population studies. They also surveyed present educational facilities in Arlington greater Bennington Bennington Village North Bennington Pownal North Pownal Shaftsbury and Woodford and have resolved the needs inherent in the present operation of those districts. The problem is three sided 1. Too Little space for a growing enrolment. 2. Inadequate educational opportunities. 3. Rising costs. A the finance committee is j attacking this latter problem with the conviction that rising costs can be materially flattened out by combining the resources of the several school districts. It is generally recognized that it is far More costly for each separate District to attempt alone to meet the costs of increasing enrolments than to group their efforts especially As this usually Down grades the Quality of education. Most expensive do nothing a there Are serious problems now in each District which Call for prompt solutions As they will become More acute and More costly with each passing year. Those who have studied the problem Are convinced that to do nothing is the most expensive procedure that we could follow. This method of holding Down rising costs by the formation of regional schools is currently being employed successfully by a number of school districts in Vermont and by Many others across the United states. A the finance committee is making preliminary reports on Basic costs and those factors when resolved form the foundation for a Concrete recommendation. Its members Are making Strong efforts to develop by Early Spring a specific plan which can be placed before the people of the several school districts for their help and thursday nights meeting also included a review of proposed audiovisual material to be used in presenting to the Public the findings of the planning Board.
