The assessment calculation follows a lease settlement of more than $2 million.
EDCO, an educational collaborative of 16 cities and towns formerly based on Middlesex Turnpike, has ended all programs and services because of financial difficulties.
Conrad said EDCO is “the first collaborative in state history to go out of business without having funds in hand to pay liabilities.”
According to the EDCO website, “The collaborative as an organization will close on June 30.” Conrad said, “That’s the goal for everyone. But if everything went to litigation it could take a long time.”
There are continuing legal actions by some member towns, he said, and the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is involved.
