    • February 5th, 2016 - The streamlining savings would come from a variety of places

      The streamlining savings would come from a variety of places. One major example would be in business operations. Currently, the FCSU business office must create five separate and duplicate budgets, have five separate audits and provide regular financial reports to five separate school boards. That takes an enormous amount of staff time. In a merged district, it would be reduced to one budget, one audit and reports to just one board.

      There are many other opportunities such as shared administrative staff, […]

    • February 4th, 2016 - If the Articles of Agreement to merge is approved

      If the Articles of Agreement to merge is approved by the voters in all three towns (St. Albans Town, St. Albans City and Fairfield), taxpayers will get tax incentives over five years of 10 cents, 8 cents, 6 cents, 4 cents and 2 cents in each of the participating towns. No one can determine what the tax impact will be until budgets are passed, but it will be that much less than it will be without the incentives. Visit the […]

    • February 3rd, 2016 - The educational advantages to a unification

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

      Unification would create a single school district and elected board responsible for all grades, pre-K through twelve. The unified school board would assume all of the responsibilities of […]

    • February 2nd, 2016 - Opportunity for districts and supervisory unions to unify

      Act 46 of 2015 is an opportunity for districts and supervisory unions to unify existing disparate governance structures into sustainable systems of education delivery that are designed to meet identified State goals, while recognizing and reflecting local priorities. There is no mandate to close or merge schools, but to unify the governance – for this region that means going from five school boards to one.  Residents of St. Albans Town, St. Albans City and Fairfield will vote to unify on Town […]

      In a five to four vote at Monday night’s FCSU Act 46 Study Committee meeting, after vigorous discussion, the committee voted not to send the Articles of Agreement and Report for accelerated merger the State Board of Education for approval, nor to the voters.

    • December 17th, 2015 - Act 46

      *What is Franklin Central – a* *school district, union district, or supervisory union and what are the differences?* We are all three. Each town has an elementary school, and each of those is a “school district” with its own school board. St. Albans City and St. Albans Town are also members of Union District No. 48 (USHD-48) which consists of Bellows Free Academy/Northwest Technical Center, and also has its own school board with proportional representation from St. Albans City […]
