Residents in the Region 12 school district will be going to the polls this week to decide on the future of elementary education.


Region 12 Bridgewater, Roxbury and Washington voters are voting Tuesday on proposed changes to the regionalization plan.  Right now the plan says elementary grades k-to-5 will remain in their present home towns.  That would change to a consolidated elementary school to be constructed on the Shepaug campus.  Residents will also be voting on whether to appropriate $40.87 million to consolidate the schools on that campus and renovate the middle/high school. 


If residents approve the change, Booth Free School in Roxbury, Burnham School in Bridgewater and Washington Primary School would be closed. 


Polls will be open tomorrow from 6am to 8pm.
