The Tamworth School District has asked the Conway School Board to investigate forming a cooperative school district for the schools in Conway and surrounding towns in SAU 9 and 13. On Monday night, the school district budget committee voted to recommend that to bring the question to Conway voters (the proposal still needs to be confirmed by the full Conway School Board). School board Chairman Joe Lentini said, “I think we should show we are serious about looking at it at least." The idea of a cooperative school district was floated in the 1990s and supported by Conway voters, but defeated by voters in Jackson, squashing the idea. With the 20-year tuition contracts with the sending towns now 15 years old, towns must decide by 2023 if they will leave the agreement or not.
