The Monadnock Regional School District will have one fewer member town beginning next year.
By a district-wide vote of 412 to 308 Tuesday, the town of Sullivan got the go-ahead to leave Monadnock at the end of the 2012-13 school year.
The town will now wait to hear from the N.H. Board of Education, which must issue a certificate acknowledging that Sullivan has lawfully withdrawn from Monadnock. After the certificate is issued, which is expected to be in December, Sullivan will form its own school district, and the state Board of Education will appoint a pro tem school board, moderator, clerk and treasurer until an election can be held in March 2013.
“We have a lot of work to do,” Jenna G. Labadie, chairwoman of the Sullivan Withdrawal Study Committee and the town’s representative to the Monadnock Regional School Board, said Wednesday.
