a series of Ripton school board-sponsored forums... began on May 18 and
most recently convened on July 19. Residents have been invited to offer any
short- and long-term ideas to keep the small community school viable in wake of
shrinking student numbers, a trend that is affecting most schools in the Addison
Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) and indeed throughout Vermont.
Lee Sease, ACSU superintendent, said Ripton’s K-6 enrollment was 61 children in 2003, a number that shrank to 45 this year and is projected to descend to 27 by 2013.
