Easthampton Mayor Pans Charter School

Easthampton Mayor Michael Tautznik says he’s not happy about a plan by Hilltown Cooperative Charter School to move to an industrial park in that city. ┬áTautznik says the charter school will pull essential funding from the public school system and take a valuable industrial property off the tax roles. ┬áThe K-through-8 charter school wants to move from the Brassworks Building in Haydenville to the former Jenoptik Optical Systems building in Easthampton next summer.
