School Board Votes to Pursue School Closure: At the School Board Meeting held Monday, Feb. 12, at the Charlotte School, the School Board voted to pursue closing the school following a lengthy public comment session. Board Member Linda Fitzsimmons made the following motion: "The School Board of Charlotte hereby finds that Charlotte Elementary School is unnecessary or unprofitable to maintain within the meaning of Section 4102(3) of Title 20-A of the Maine Revised Staues; authorizes and directs the Superintendent of Schools to file a school closing report with the Commissioner of Education pursuant to Section 4102(3) of Title 20-A of the Maine Revised Statutes; and authorizes the Superintendent of School to close Charlotte Elementary School after the conclusion of the 2023-2024 school year." The motion was seconded by School Board Chairperson Janet Moholland with deep regret, and passed 2-1.
