(Cite as: 16 V.S.A. § 1573)
  • § 1573. Approval by State Board of Education

    The planning committee shall transmit the report to the Secretary who, after consultation with the chair of the entity that performs workforce development activities pursuant to 10 V.S.A. § 542, shall submit the report with his or her recommendations to the State Board. The State Board, after notice to the planning committee and after giving the committee and other interested parties an opportunity to be heard, shall consider the report and the Secretary's recommendations, and decide whether the establishment of an alternative governance structure will be in the best interests of the students and the region. The State Board may request the Secretary or the planning committee, or both, to make further investigation, and may consider any other information deemed by it to be pertinent. If, after due consideration and any further meetings as it may deem necessary, the State Board finds that establishment of the alternative governance structure is in the best interests of the students and the region involved, it shall approve the report submitted by the committee, together with any amendments, as a final report of the planning committee, and shall give notice of its action to the committee. The chair of the planning committee shall file a copy of the final report with the clerk of each town school district, incorporated school district, unified union school district, and city school district in the region at least 20 days prior to the vote to adopt the alternative governance structure.
