CHAPLIN, Conn. (AP) _ Three small towns in Eastern Connecticut are considering a plan to regionalize their elementary schools.

The Norwich Bulletin reports officials from Chaplin, Hampton and Scotland plan to meet Tuesday to discuss the idea of a regional district for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

The towns already share a high school, Parish Hill, in Chaplin.

A study commissioned by the towns says they could save between $770,000 and $3 million a year by consolidating elementary school services.

It’s not clear whether the towns would build a new school or use existing schools. Any final plan would have to be approved by voters in all three towns.
