A Look At Act 46 As Final Decisions Near On Reshaping School Districts

Nov 19, 2018

For the past three years, school districts around Vermont have been in a voluntary phase, allowing voters and school boards to work on their own Act 46 merger plans. In June, the acting Secretary of Education issued a statewide plan making a series of recommendations about unmerged districts. As the State Board of Education prepares to announce its final recommendations next week, Vermont Edition looks at how decisions are being made and what has and hasn't worked in the process.

We'll hear from Bill Mathis, vice-chair of the state board, Jeanne Collins, Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union superintendent, and Cara Zimmerman, Stowe School District chair.
