Board of Ed approves Lincoln plan to become its own district
LINCOLN, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s State Board of Education Wednesday approved a proposal to allow the Lincoln School District to form its own supervisory union.
It follows last week’s failed merger attempt between the Mount Abraham Unified School District and the Addison Northwest School District. The potential merger prompted the town of Lincoln to withdraw from MAUSD earlier this fall. School leaders say they were concerned the Lincoln Community School would close and they wanted local control.
Analysis from the secretary of education recommended the board designate Lincoln as its own district. Documents from the Lincoln School District show they believe becoming their own district would be more efficient and would have the least effect on students and other supervisory unions and school districts.
