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.
