WISCASSET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - People in the town of Wiscasset are being asked to take their town out of its school district.
Wiscasset consolidated with a number of other towns into RSU 12, but the relationship has been rocky - and now a group of townspeople says its time for a divorce.
The Wiscasset Education Research Panel is now circulating a petition to have the town withdraw from the RSU.
Chairman Doug Smith says he believes they already have enough signatures to take the issue to a town-wide vote in June.
Wiscasset has about 700 students in grades K thru 12, while the whole RSU has 17-hundred students.
Smith says that's a part of the problem.
He says Wiscasset has 24 percent of the students but pays 35 percent of the cost of the RSU.
