CONCORD, Vt. (AP) — Residents of a Vermont town will vote for a second time on whether to close their community's tiny high school.

The Caledonian Record reports ( the Concord school board decided Thursday to schedule a ballot revote on whether to close the high school June 16.

Townspeople voted last month to close the school, but residents petitioned for a revote.

Superintendent Brian Rayburn says at least three teachers would not return if the school stays open and that recruiting teachers in June would be difficult. If the school stays open new contracts would have to be negotiated with the teachers.

Concord residents have grappled for years about whether to keep their high school, which this year has 65 students.

A public meeting is scheduled for June 13.
