Skowhegan – Is it time for a change? In School Administrative District 54, that depends on who you ask.
Monday night at Skowhegan Middle School residents from the 6 towns that make up SAD 54, Cannan, Cornville, Mercer, Norridgewock, Smithfield and Skowhegan were able to speak. An array of opinions on the subject. Some feeling the ties to tradition were too strong to part with. Others thinking it’s not being taken as a sign of respect and it’s time for a change. No decisions were made following the meeting. The School Board will hold it’s regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday night at which point a clearer idea of what the next step to take will be presented. Superintendent Brent Colbry said that an SAD wide vote is not currently being planned, but that such an idea has been floated in the past. We’ll have the latest details as the story develops.
