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.
