Five Addison County School Budgets Fail

One of the trends on Town Meeting Day was that far fewer school budgets were voted down this year than last year. In 2014, 37 school budgets failed.

So far this year, 198 school budgets have been passed and 20 were rejected, with 20 to be voted on.

But in Addison County this year, school budgets faced a rough go, where five were rejected by voters, including two high school budgets that are voted on by several towns together.

Addison County Independent reporter Zach Despart provides analysis of what caused the rejection of the budgets.
