There are costs associated with operating any school system, including the county system of which Chelsea’s schools currently are a part. The Chelsea City Council has authorized a feasibility study to be completed to identify the costs of forming and sustaining a city school system. That study is to be completed no later than this upcoming October with the findings to be publicly presented during a Chelsea City Council meeting. We will not know any actual costs associated with a new city school system until the study is completed. The goal at this time is to gather as much information as possible, share that with the public, and then present opportunities for informed decisions to be made when that time comes.
