State agency examines ACSU plan for new school board

Today the state's Board of Education is examining plans for a new school governance structure, which would create a single school board for Ripton and the other six ACSU towns, if accepted by the state and passed by voters.  This process is in accordance with Act 46.

VPR quotes State Board Chairman Stephan Morse, who
says he's encouraged by the start, but he understands it'll take a lot more work to have every district in the state sign on to a consolidation plan.
 "This is the first time since the 1890s that there's been a major reform in the governance structure of Vermont's educational system," Morse says. "It's huge. And I think both legislators and the State Board, as well as the agency, can fully appreciate the difficulty that some areas are going to have pulling this together."
We'll blog about the result's of today's Board of Education process as they come in.
