A Message from the ACT 46 Committee

There are many educational advantages to school unification. First and foremost, a unified school district will help ensure that all students in the district receive an equitable, quality education regardless of town of residence. It will help ensure that each student entering BFA arrives equally prepared having received the same excellent opportunities.

Unification will create a single school district and elected board responsible for all grades, pre-K through twelve. The unified school board will assume all of the responsibilities of the supervisory union.

A unified district will streamline the complicated school board and administrative structure outlined above. It could expand educational options for students (e.g. sharing equipment, technology and staff, flexibility in building use). It could provide cost savings in the operation of our pre-K-12 schools.  A few examples:  one audited financial statement instead of five; contract with a single provider for trash or food service; eliminate billing back and forth for services provided by one member district to another.

A unification vote will allow us to work towards a unified strategic plan for all students in the three towns, under the banner of a shared vision and mission.

A single school district will allow for great flexibility and creativity to best serve our students. Strict town borders would no longer be an issue and could give each student the opportunity for the setting that works best. For example, a student living beside the City School but actually located in the Town may be able to attend the closest school. Or a Fairfield parent who works in St. Albans City, and has childcare in the City, may be able to have their child attend City School.
