Barnard to merge with WCSU

Staff report

Barnard voters decided 119-85 to merge with Windsor Central Supervisory Union on Tuesday.

Residents had long debated joining Windsor Central prior to the vote. Some in Barnard wanted to turn Barnard Academy into an independent school to avoid the school’s potential closure in the future.

About 29% of the 715 registered voters turned out to vote.

Windsor Central includes students in the towns of Killington, Woodstock, Pittsfield, Bridgewater, Pomfret and Reading.
