Bill Calls For School Services Consolidation

Print More

Vermont’s education commissioner says a bill that would consolidate services and courses of study in each supervisory union is a step toward reducing costs and greater efficiency in the state’s public schools.

Armando Vilaseca has said the key to reining in education spending is cutting the number of school districts and supervisory unions, currently about 280.

He testified before the House Education Committee on Tuesday in support of a bill that would require supervisory union-wide curriculum and services and steps toward creating a minimum and optimal class size.

The state Board of Education also has voted to set up a committee to look at reducing the number of school districts, curricula and efficiency of services.
