Rural Supervision in New England Townships and Union Districts


by Julius E. Warren 1913

The Massachusetts law provides for the expert supervision of all public schools. It requires that all towns (townships) of $2,500,000 or less assessed valuation shall unite in unions of two or more towns, for the purpose of the employment of a superintendent of schools. There must be not less than twenty-five or more than fifty schools in a union at the time of its formation. Any four towns (townships), however, may form a union, though the combined number of schools may be less thap twenty-five. The superintendents are elected by the school committees of the union from a list of candidates certified.as qualified by the State Board of Education. The minimum salary is $1,500, of which the state contributes $1,250. The term of office is three years.
