In early 2021, a group of town and school officials from Hampton and Scotland began to discuss the possibility of operating a single elementary school together. A committee was formed—the Ad Hoc Committee for Interdistrict Educational Cost Sharing—and appointed by the Boards of Selectmen from each town. The Committee has appointed two subcommittees—one to explore the programming of such a school, and one to explore how two towns can run a school together. This arrangement would be unique in Connecticut, and these committees are now hard at work figuring out to create an agreement that will continue the excellent education available at both elementary schools, while reaping the benefits of eliminating redundancies. The committee will present its proposal to the Boards of Education of both towns, which are responsible for deciding whether or not to implement it. Meetings are open to the public. A calendar of upcoming meetings, and the minutes and agendas of all past meetings can be found here, along with more details about this project.
