The Howland School Board voted unanimously to close North Road Intermediate School at the end of the academic year.
North Road Intermediate currently houses fifth graders who, starting next year, will attend Howland Middle School.
The addition of fifth grade will add 200 more students to the 630 already at the middle school. Superintendent Kevin Spicher said that won’t be a problem.
Closing North Road will save Howland Schools $500,000.
