The community of Cornish NH is currently exploring withdrawing from SAU 6, which is made up of schools from Cornish, Claremont and Unity. Cornish plan would include outsourcing some services – including a part-time superintendent and business functions – from Plainfield’s single-town district and technology services from Windsor.
Cornish began exploring the option of withdrawing due to decreased enrollment and vacant staff positions. Barring any setbacks during next month’s public hearing, the town would then send its plan to the state’s board of education for approval. From there, the proposal would go back in front of residents during March voting. If approved a new school system will be in place for the 2017 school year.
