ST. ALBANS — Attendees at a forum on the proposed merger of the Fairfield, St. Albans City and St. Albans Town school districts questioned the potential for tax savings, and raised the topics of future teacher salaries, the addition of schools and creating a different configuration for merger.

Under the law, if voters approve the merger, the new board will have to negotiate a new contract covering the teachers at all of the schools as well as the special educators now employed by the supervisory union, and one covering all of the para-educators at all of the schools.
