Norfolk to say 'so long' to King Philip Schools?

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 25, 2007 02:30 PM


The Norfolk School Committee is looking into the possibility of the town opting out of the King Philip Regional School District.

School Committee Chairwoman Kim Williams said she is not dissatisfied with the King Philip schools, which also educate students from Plainville and Wrentham, but she wants to "get better educated about what our options are." The school committee will pay a consultant $2,500 to put on a workshop about the town's options.

However, Williams said, leaving district may be "the least viable option" because Norfolk taxpayers are still helping to pay for major building projects for the regional schools.
