The School Committee's elimination of a teacher for wood shop at the Barrington Middle School caused a bit of consternation at the annual budget hearing on Wednesday evening.
A middle school student, Calvin Banas, actually submitted a petition to the School Committee at its most recent meeting to save wood shop. It had more than 450 signatures.
Now there is a possibility that an amendment will be made to the proposed school budget to put up to $100,000 back into the spending plan at the Financial Town Meeting on May 23.
Are you willing to pay a bit more in taxes -- about 5 cents more per $1,000 of assessed value -- to save wood shop? Complete the Patch Poll and please use the comment box.
