Seekonk to Be Admitted to Bi-County Collaborative


Seekonk Public Schools will be admitted to the Bi-County Collaborative in 2023.

“I am pleased to announce Seekonk will be admitted into the Bi-County Collaborative in July of next year in time for the 2023-2024 school year,” Superintendent Rich Drolet said Monday. “I have been trying to get Seekonk into Bi-Co for over three years now. We anticipate about $50,000 in annual savings because we will be charged a reduced rate for any Seekonk students who attend any out-of-district placement as part of the Bi-County Collaborative.”

Drolet received an official notification from the Bi-County Collaborative’s Executive Director Jeanne Sullivan last month. The school is based in Franklin.

Drolet explained a two-thirds majority vote of all 19 School Committees that are Bi-County district members will need to occur before Seekonk is admitted.
