IMPORTANT: Stowe School Board Update

Education Reform (H.361) Passed in Legislature
H.361, the Education Reform Bill, passed the legislature on May 15, and so begins our work as a board to analyze the implications and options for Stowe schools.  The Vermont School Boards Association has published a Two Page Overview and a Section by Section Summary, and the final bill as passed can be found here (search the document for “H.361” or scroll down to page reference 2112).  We have asked Tracy to recommend a work plan and timeline that take into account various deadlines within the legislation, which we will discuss at our next meeting on June 1. A review of the facilities audit is also slated for the June agenda.  June 1 is our last scheduled meeting of the school year and will be held at 6:00 p.m. in the SES Music Room.
