Newport School Superintendent Jermain joins What’sUpNewp for a live virtual video chat on Wednesday
In six weeks, voters in Middletown and Newport will determine the future of the communities’ school systems, with regionalization on the ballot.
Newport Public Schools Superintendent Colleen Burns Jermain joins What’sUpNewp for a live virtual video chat at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, and we’ll hear if there are any more details about how this regionalization looks immediately, and, perhaps- be, over the next few years.
It is understood that regionalization will save both communities millions of dollars due to increased state aid, but at issue are educational values and whether this regionalization will turn into a real system. regionalized with shared school facilities.
We will also ask the school superintendent, about the construction of Rogers High School, if everything went well with the addition of Pell, and if there are any teaching and driver positions of vacant buses now that the school year is underway.
We will also take the time to ask your questions and share your concerns.
