    Residents of Concord, Vermont, have affirmed their decision to close their community's tiny high school.

    In a revote held Tuesday, residents voted a second time to close the high school.

    The kindergarten through grade 8 portion of the school will remain open. The town will pay to send high school students to other schools.

    Residents first voted in April, to close the school, but some petitioned for a revote.

    Superintendent Brian Rayburn said Wednesday he didn't know the vote, but the decision to close the high school was not reversed.

    Concord residents have grappled for years about whether to keep their high school, which this year had 65 students.
