What Happens Next After 46 Vote?


Now that the 46 proposal has been defeated by all 4 towns voting, can we get some discussion & info about what happens next?  I kept hearing that if it was turned down "the state will impose" a plan on the towns.  But I also know there's some sort of alternative group that has apparently already been meeting and is now maybe gearing up to provide an alternative proposal to the state before whatever the deadline is for that.

There have been a number of e-mails back & forth among Guilford citizens today.  My sense is that the alternative initiative is more active in other towns, not so much in Guilford, and I think people here are eager to know about this.

Thanks, Don

Answering my own question I see a good article tonight in VtDigger by Mike Faher on this subject; assume it will appear in Reformer on Thurs.

Just guessin'

I'm pretty sure it means kids don't ever have to go to school again. : )

I'm sure if given the chance, we can do better.
