This Day in History: 1959-03-02
An executive session of the Boards of Education of Mahwah and Allendale failed to resolve the question of whether a regional high school should be created covering the two towns. Allendale had requested the meeting since their students were attending Mahwah High School on a ten-year tuition arrangement. They wished to create a more permanent solution for secondary education in Allendale. Dr. Geroge B. McClellan, Mahwah’s Superintendent and Allendale President George Wolfson agreed to continue meeting. County Superintendent Archie S. Hay had outlined the steps necessary to create a regional high school to the two groups.
