© 2016 Telegraph Publishing, LLC

Act 46 artThere will be a public forum on Act 46, Vermont’s school consolidation law, on Wednesday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the library at Green Mountain Union High School, 716 Rt. 103 South in Chester. A committee consisting of school board members, educators and the public have been studying the options for mergers under the law since late last year.

The meeting will begin with an overview of Act 46 by Diana Watson, the facilitator who has been working with the supervisory union’s study committee. There will also be a presentation on the work of the finance sub-committee and discussion of educational opportunities. A question and answer session will close out the program.

Decisions made to comply with Act 46 will have effects on education taxes and on the availability of educational opportunities for the communities in the Two Rivers Supervisory Union area. These are Chester, Andover, Ludlow, Cavendish, Plymouth, Mt. Holly and Baltimore.

The forum is not just for Chester residents. Anyone within the TRSU is welcomed to attend.
