Whether voters in Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne, St. George and Williston knew it or not when they voted on June 7 to consolidate under one unified district, they became part of the largest statewide education reorganization in the past 125 years. Act 46, which passed in all five towns of CSSU to create the Champlain Valley School District, is designed with an overarching goal to reduce the number of Vermont’s existing school districts by half.
The results from the Act 46 governance consolidation merger special meeting vote within the Chittenden South Supervisory Union are in.
Is uniting the five separate school districts of CSSU into a single entity in the best interests of our students and our communities? Voters in Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne, Williston, and St. George will decide that question at the polls on Tuesday, June 7.
The ballot for the school district consolidation vote is Tuesday, June 7. Absentee ballots are available at the clerk’s office and polls are open 7 a.m.–7 p.m. at the CCS Multi-Purpose Room. More info below:
