Six Town Regionalization

The Six Town Regionalization Planning Board (STRPB) was formed under the provisions of Chapter 71, Section 14A and 14B whereby, two or more towns may join together to form a Regional School District Planning Board. The STRPB is comprised of 18 members (3 from each Town), representing the towns of Bernardston, Gill, Leyden, Montague, Northfield, and Warwick. Its purpose is to study the fiscal and educational advisability of establishing a new Regional School District. Once the STRPB finishes its comprehensive study, which will likely be a two to three-year process, it will make recommendations for all six towns to consider.

The underlying task of the board's study is to explore potential opportunities to expand present learning activities and project learning designs, by offering a robust curriculum for all High School and Middle School students attending the Pioneer Valley Regional School District (PVRSD) and the Gill-Montague Regional School District(GMRSD) in a manner that is both affordable and sustainable.
