On Tuesday, October 21, the Hadley-Luzerne School District is asking voters to reconsider the Grade Reconfiguration Proposition. A positive vote on the proposition will result in the school districts grades being realigned PK-6 and 7-12.

A Public Hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7 at the Stuart M. Townsend Middle School. The purpose of the grade reconfiguration proposition is to correct the alignment of grades in the district and improve the academic achievement of our students. Currently, Pre-Kindergarten through grade 2 students (ages 4-7) attend school in our main building next to high school students (age 14-19). The proposed grade reconfiguration will enable PK-6 students to attend school at the current middle school and enable students in grades 7-12 to attend school in the main building. The grade reconfiguration proposition asks the voters to approve the transfer of $560,000 from our allocated fund balance to support the project. In 2012, voters approved the establishment of a capital reserve and funded the reserve with $160,000. The estimated cost to complete the renovations is $720,000. This amount includes funds to add suitable playground equipment for elementary children at the proposed PK-6 elementary school. The district proposes no borrowing or increase in taxes to fund the project. At the May 20 budget vote, the proposal was narrowly defeated with 304 residents in favor and 311 opposed illustrating how every vote counts. A detailed description of the proposal can be found on the Hadley-Luzerne website at and in a newsletter that will be mailed to all district residents. We have also provided additional information to help you in making an informed decision on this proposal. We encourage all residents to vote. Please make sure you are eligible to vote and if you are not available on voting day, consider voting via an absentee ballot. Applications for absentee ballots for voting on this proposition may be obtained at the Office of the District Clerk between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays and on the district’s website at Completed applications for absentee ballots must be received by the District Clerk at least seven (7) days prior to the vote if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter, or the day before the election, if the ballot is to be delivered personally to the voter. Absentee ballots must be received by the District Clerk not later than 5 p.m. on October 21, 2014. For further clarification of voter registration or absentee ballots, please call the District Clerk at 696-2378 x108. We are very grateful for your continued support and hope the information in this newsletter will prove helpful as you consider whether to approve this proposal.
