With the prospect of the state reimbursing Middletown and Newport for more than 80 percent of the cost to build a regional high school and regionalize k-12, Middletown’s Town Council is now determining whether to enter what Newport Mayor Jamie Bova suggests is a more “robust conversation” about the unification of the communities’ high schools.
If Middletown and Newport were to regionalize just the high school and keep k-8 separate, the state would reimburse approximately 60% for the new high school.
Middletown’s Town Council has said it expects to decide whether to enter the conversation at its June 17 meeting.
Where do you fall on the issue, are you for or against the unification?
