  Rich Peters, co-chair of the Wahconah building project, contacted iBerkshires on Thursday and said the track may have events next year but that the school could receive a warning and not be able to use it the following year if it was not fixed.

The School Committee at its last meeting continued this conversation that started about two years ago.  In March, it was recommended that the school move toward the all-vocational model beginning next year.

The transition would start with Taconic only accepting Career Technical Education (CTE) students in the fall of 2023. Non-CTE students in Grades 10 through 12 would remain at the school and by the fall of 2026, the whole student body would be vocational.
