As of February 19, 2014, the Groton-Dunstable Regional School Committee has recommended to eliminate Foreign Languages and Art & Music from the middle school, eliminate Music & Art from the high school and eliminate six teachers in the elementary schools in grades 3 & 4 that will result in class size increases ranging from 26 to 30 students.

The residents of Groton & Dunstable are choosing to speak out to their recommendation. We feel that they are taking the easy way out and instead of properly investigating all revenue programs suggested at the numerous public meetings they are choosing to dismantle the curriculum. Here is the petition that was set up about an hour ago. It is also being promoted on FB and shared with any news reporter that will give me five minutes of their time. We welcome all signatures to help our quest to educate the whole-child and offer a well-rounded education to the children that reside in Groton & Dunstable MA.
