To the editor:
The Region 12 Board of Education plans to invest about $40 million in an Agriscience Academy that will take form on the campus of Shepaug Middle/High School in the town of Washington. Shepaug has suffered declining enrollments since the turn of the century and is in deep trouble in terms of high cost of education and declining student’s academic achievement. The current facility was designed to educate about 1,000 students. The current enrollment is about 450 and declining rapidly.
