James Madison Middle School

The Burlington School District no longer needs the former Washington Elementary School, prompting the school board to vote to demolish the building.

The Burlington School District believes it has a permanent home for one of its programs.  The district’s alternative high school serves about 100 non-traditional students.

These are students who are not able to attend regular classes for a variety of reasons (arrest, behavior, having a baby, etc.)

Superintendent Jane Evans says they are required to complete a similar course-load as students at Burlington High School.
