Some Allegany Co. students can study in Washington Co.

August 16, 2011

WASHINGTON COUNTY — Some Allegany County high school students will attend school in Washington County under an agreement approved Tuesday.

Anthony J. Trotta, the chief legal counsel for Washington County Public Schools, said that, so far, 18 students will be included in the agreement.

Sixteen will go to Hancock Middle-Senior High School in the coming school year. One will attend Barbara Ingram School for the Arts and one will attend Washington County Technical High School.

For Allegany County families near the Washington County line, Hancock's high school is closer than the one in Cumberland.

The Washington County Board of Education on Tuesday approved a memorandum of understanding that lets Allegany County high school students continue using Washington County schools. Allegany County considered ending the agreement this year.

Allegany County will provide bus transportation and will reimburse Washington County Public Schools for the cost of educational services, according to a summary attached to the memorandum.

Allegany County middle-schoolers will no longer go to school in Washington County.
