THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Superintendents at Canton and Potsdam schools say a study of merging the two schools districts shows a joint school district could reduce tax rates and offer more educational opportunities to students. Costs for transportation and time students will spend riding buses would remain close to the same. More programs and sports teams could be added if the merger passes but competition for spots on sports teams would likely increase.
Do you feel the merger is in the best interest of both schools?
Results will be posted Monday, Oct. 27.
