Here's what Hillsborough school board member Edward Jacobs had to say about the urgency facing the districts:
"Regionalization is just one of the alternatives being investigated by the Hillsborough board, which is now awaiting replies from all high school districts within 15 miles concerning their ability to accept Hillsborough high school students by September, 1968. In view of the facts [sic] that Montgomery, with half the number of our high school students, has been turned down by every school district in the area, it makes me most pessimistic about Hillsborough's finding a receiving district for its children."
A committee was formed with three representative board members and the superintendent of each district, but ultimately the districts decided to abandon the plan and continue to pursue the construction of new schools in each town.

Faced with the prospect that Hillsborough students would have nowhere to go after the 1967-68 school year when Somerville would no longer accept them, the board members, superintendent, and architect spent the next six months working through 16 revisions trying to come up with an economical high school plan that voters would approve.
