Budget Keeps Barnes Open

Last night the School Board approved a budget which will keep Barnes open as a K-5 for the next school year, but will cut most of the Barnes administration (principal, social worker, librarian), with the administration of Barnes to be done by the Wheeler administration.

It is a victory that we were able to put enough pressure on the board to keep Barnes open, however there are obviously still lots of issues, both in terms of how the school will function with shared administration and in terms of the long-term commitment of Burlington to community schools. We will be having another coalition meeting on Saturday to discuss these and other issues.
