Brattleboro RTM Act 46 Non-Binding Resolution for School Self-Evaluation

At Brattleboro's Representative Town Meeting, it is expected that Representative Andy Davis will introduce a non-binding resolution on the topic of Act 46 and school mergers for members to discuss, debate, and vote upon during "Other Business" at the end of the meeting.

I asked him about the resolution and here's what he said:

"The basic meaning of this is straightforward. We have been unable to form a "preferred" merger under the rules of Act 46. There are provisions in Act 46 for school boards - not the study group - to find an alternative path towards the goals of Act 46. This resolution simply directs the Brattleboro Town School Board to pursue this alternative path under Sec. 9 of Act 46.
