Dear Parents,

The West River Education District Board will become responsible for the education of students in Brookline, Jamaica, Newfane, Townshend and Windham (7-12) on July 1, 2019. 

The Board is in the process of planning for the 2019-2020 school year. Intradistrict School Choice​ (where a parent could send their child to Jamaica, NewBrook, or Townshend) following a policy and procedure set by the board, is an opportunity the Board is currently discussing.

We need parent input in order to inform the discussion. Please complete the following Google Form prior to AUGUST 13th​.

Your answers to the survey are critically important to a well-informed review.
