Report Hoped For on Tonight's Brattleboro School Board Vote

At tonight's Brattleboro Town School Board meeting there may be a vote taken on whether that board will support the Alternative Governance Structure proposal to the State Agency & Board of Education.  (See a letter to the editor in today's Reformer.)  For those of us living in other towns, it feels just a tad inappropriate -- tho it is perfecty permissible -- to attend other towns' meetings.  But it would be great if the result of this vote could be shared on ibrattleboro.  Thanks to whomever could attend the meeting and let us know.

VTC Nursing Program Welcomes All to an Open House on Friday, Dec. 1, 4-6 PM

November 27, 2017

BRATTLEBORO—Vermont Technical College’s Nursing Program, Southeast Region, located in Brattleboro, will hold an Open House on Friday, December 1, 4-6 PM. It will be held on the second floor of the Brooks House on Main Street (between Main Street and the Harmony Parking lot). Nursing faculty and staff will be available to answer questions about the program and offer tours of the facilities.

Many people walking on Main Street in Brattleboro are often unaware of the hard-working instructors and student nurses just above them in the Brooks House, who represent only a part of the over 400 faculty, staff and students who make up the Vermont Technical College’s Nursing Program. Brattleboro, along with Springfield, VT and Keene, NH,  represents the Southeast Region Campus, one of five regional campuses with nine different locations across the entire state of Vermont. Vermont Tech offers a one-year Licensed Practical Nursing Certificate, a two-year Associates Degree in Nursing plus an online Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

Your Vote On The Proposed Act 46 Merger Matters

On November 7 voters in Brattleboro, Putney, Dummerston and Guilford will vote on whether we should merge our town schools into a single school district overseen by a nine-member school board. This is a substantive vote that will decide the direction and structure of our schools for many years.  Your vote will count.

Some people will tell you that this mega-merger of four town school districts rolled into one is inevitable. That is a form of resignation. In fact, this vote represents a real choice between a single Pre-K to grade 12 (including the career center) centralized school district and the opportunity to enhance our current supervisory union to meet the goals of Act 46 - equity, transparency and sustainability - goals that are widely supported.  Act 46 spells out an alternative path to keeping a supervisory union such as WSESU - with its individual town boards. In order to pursue this alternative path we must vote down the merger proposal. School board and community members are already working on this alternative path.
