The Vermont Agency of Education (AOE) published its proposed statewide plan for school district consolidation in early June. The proposal recommends to the State Board of Education that they not consolidate the schools in our supervisory union (Orleans Southwest) at this time. While this is the AOE’s recommendation, the full plan still requires approval by the Vermont State Board of Education (SBE). The State Board of Ed will meet with school boards from the northern part of Vermont to discuss their proposals in mid-July. The final consolidation plan will not be published until late October.
The Lakeview Board anticipates hosting a meeting later this summer to update our residents on the status of our proposal, as well as to continue the discussion about the future of Lakeview.
