Vt. commission to look at public schools

Posted: Updated:

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A new commission has been charged with reviewing quality standards in Vermont schools.

The new 17-member Education Quality Standards Commission will hold its first meeting in November with the ultimate goal of developing recommendations to be adopted by the state Board of Education.

The recommendations could include new graduation requirements, the amount of time students spend in class and other policies that could affect how Vermont schools operate.

The Rutland Herald says the commission will build off the work started in 2009 by the Education Transformation Policy Commission.
