NEWPORT - The Secretary of the Agency of Transportation delivered bad news to the House and Senate Transportation Committees last week by projecting a shortfall in funds necessary over the next five years to preserve the state's transportation infrastructure to achieve “good” status.
A report created by the Committee on Transportation Funding estimates the state will require $698.3 million to provide the necessary funds to achieve a “good” repair status, which is much more than the $457 million in revenues that will be generated over the five-year period.

SCHOOL CHOICE CHANGES

January 21, 2013

NEWPORT - Vermont's School Choice law, first enacted in 2000, has been amended this past legislative session to clarify capacity guidelines and set a uniform date to make annual capacity determinations.
Prior to the changes, a school district could establish formal agreements with area school districts to allow students to attend a school outside their home district. NCUHS has such an arrangement with both Canaan High School and Lake Region Union High School, allowing up to 15 students between the schools combined to transfer to North Country.
