Newport School and Select Boards Meet

Chief Boroughs

Newport Police Chief James C. Burroughs addresses the joint meeting of the Newport Select and School Boards

The Newport School and Select Boards met last night to discuss and work on common goals between the two boards. Currently, the two branches of local government are sharing costs in programming efforts which include the schools Resource officer, purchasing heating oil and electricity and sharing the athletic fields and its facilities. S.A.U. superintendent Earl Sussman sees this effort as vital to taxpayers.
Future plans include working on a joint committee for grant writing, getting students involved with the history of Newport and its government, as well consulting together on capital improvement projects. The two boards will meet together again next October.
