The merger of two elementary schools in two different states has been postponed indefinitely.

After examining a report from the Public Consulting Group, officials in Stamford, Vt., are putting the brakes on a merger plan between Stamford and Clarksburg elementary schools until Clarksburg can come up with a plan and financing to renovate and upgrade its school building.

"If they vote to renovate and upgrade that building, we can push forward," said Barbara Malinowski, a member of the Stamford School Committee and of the Interstate Merger Committee, referring to Clarksburg residents. "But if not, we'll have to be in a hold position for right now."
