Education officials are considering the creation of an interstate school district that would serve high school-aged students in a section of northeastern Vermont and northern New Hampshire.
Education officials from the two states met last week with interested residents in Canaan, where Vermont and New Hampshire abut Quebec, to discuss the issue.

One option under consideration would have Canaan students attend elementary school in Stewartstown, New Hampshire. The middle school would be in Colebrook and the high school would be in Canaan.

The Caledonian-Record reports school districts in both states face challenges of declining enrollment, tax pressures, a need to bolster programs with higher student ratios, and building needs.

There are two interstate school districts in Vermont and New Hampshire.
