Vermont town votes against school merger

WOODFORD, Vt. -- Voters in the town of Woodford, Vermont said no again to a school merger.
The Bennington Banner reports Woodford's re-vote would determine if four existing districts would merge into a new Mount Anthony Unified School District.
Woodford and Pownal declined the offer in November, while Bennington and Shaftsbury voted in favor of the merger.
Woodford residents would see a 16-cent tax increase if the new district would move forward. However, one school board member says the district could lose its small schools grant if it doesn't merge.
