Montague BOE votes to maintain ties with High Point; one member resigns in protest
“Montague, a one-school district serving students in pre-kindergarten through grade eight, petitioned the state education commissioner in December 2019 for approval to end its relationship with High Point Regional, in Wantage, so it could go back to sending students in grades 9-12 to Port Jervis High School in New York. A subsequent lawsuit by Montague, filed December 2020, accused High Point of bad-faith obstruction of its petition, which was not ruled on and is now a dead issue.”
Furthermore, the district will now have 65 days per state law to appoint a replacement to serve out the remainder of the resigned board member’s term, which expires next April. If no one is appointed, the executive county superintendent will appoint a candidate.
